The military has literally taken COVID-19 information dissemination to new heights.

On April 29, the Joint Task Force Diamond of the Eastern Mindanao Command under the leadership of Maj. Gen. Jose Faustino, Jr. conducted an airdrop operation over communities in Caraga region.

At least 15,000 leaflets containing information about COVID-19 and the governmentís campaign to stop the spread of disease were dropped from military choppers.

Inspected spare parts were main rotor blades, tail rotor blades, and tail rotor driveshaft.

Galang said the items were turned over to the 205th Tactical Helicopter Wing on October 6 and restoration work for the helicopters is ongoing.
