Robots are now also taking over healthcare jobs worldwide as its safer for a droid to help disinfect a hospital or help a covid patient than a human who risks getting infected by the still yet mysterious virus.
Virus-zapping robots are being used in the fight against CV in various areas around the world.
One such bot is a five-and-a-half-foot droid that will buzz around hospitals like R2-D2 and destroy killer virus bacteria using a UV-C light. The battery-powered bots will roam corridors and emit their UV-C light that will work to eradicate germs in a short time period.
Makers of one such bot, the Ultra-Violet Disinfection (UVD) robot say their machines “eliminate pathogens in 10-15 minutes.” The robots also use flashing lights to signify which stage of the disinfection process they are in.
Hospitals in Derby and Burton are the latest across the globe to bring disinfectant robots to the frontline against the virus, Derby Telegraph reported. Other health centers in Nice and Boston are also purchasing bots to use for combating CV.
Standing at five-and-a-half-feet tall, the automatic cleaners have wheels on the bottom that allow them to roam corridors and patient rooms.
NHS nurses say the tech will be vital in the fight against CV, which has caused one of the worst pandemics in recent years.
Helen Forrest, Infection Prevention and Control Lead Nurse, said:
We’re really pleased and excited to have these new UVD Robots available at our Trust.
This state-of-the-art technology will allow us to enhance our excellent, existing environmental cleaning service, and keep our hospitals safe for our patients, including those who are most vulnerable.
This is a tried and tested technology in environmental disinfection and will enable us to keep key clinical areas, such as Theatres, well disinfected and safe for our patients.
Danish makers, UVD Robots, say their free-moving germs killers can wipe out 99.9 percent of bacteria in under 10 minutes.
Dan Harding, managing director of Sychem, UK Distributor for UVD Robots, added:
