The novel coronavirus has grabbed our complete attention — and understandably so. The COVID-19 pandemic has claimed the lives of tens of thousands of people around the world, while also grinding the global economy to a halt.

But here’s the thing. Just because there’s a pandemic causing havoc worldwide, that doesn’t mean we get a break from other perils.

It doesn’t mean natural disasters will cease. It doesn’t mean we’ll escape the almost inevitable spring flooding, hailstorms and wind events that will strike in the weeks to come.

And so, there is no respite for insurance companies in the unprecedented coronavirus situation we find ourselves in. They still have to deal with the “normal stuff”, while contending with the unforeseen challenges of the pandemic.

Dealing with the “normal stuff” during a pandemic is tricky. How do you get out to a property to adjust a claim and conduct important inspections while also practicing social distancing? One answer to this is drone technology.
