Corona virus-fighting robots, used to help in the fight against the deadly disease outbreak in China

Chinese officials say that the jump is down to the method that is used to be diagnosed with new cases of Benjamin Hall’s reports from London.

Robots can be an important weapon in the fight against the novel corona virus?

The outbreak, which originated in Wuhan, China, which is contaminated with more than 60,000 employees around the world, and the death toll stands at more than 1,300 on Friday. It has in charge the protection of human health, social workers, doctors, and nurses.

We have already been introduced in some Chinese hospitals, to the provision of medicinal products and the disinfection of the surfaces, according to reports in the media, and they have also been used for the transportation of supplies, in Wuhan.

Colin Angle, the chief executive officer of the consumers of robot specialist iRobot is committed to it, telling Fox News that the robots are hard at work to help the infected patients, and the provision of medical services.

Engineers are working on a second generation of the disinfecting robot, a technology company in Hangzhou, the eastern chinese Province of Shandong province, Jan. 11, by the year 2020. Classrooms are large, bright and has a appeal to technology companies for research, development, and recovery, disinfection, and robots can replace the human being in the disinfection operations.

“They need to meet the needs of a potentially large infected population, while minimizing the risk of exposure to caregivers and to those who don’t know whether they are infected or not,” he said.

“They don’t get tired of them, they can be deployed in a hospital, accompanied by a very small number of people, multiply it by a number of employees,” said robotics expert Marcia O’malley, an associate professor of mechanical engineering at Rice University in Houston, Texas. “They’re able to, the tasks that have to be repeated.”

That is a very important factor — the robots will not be very bored. When the time is reached for a large cross-sectional area of Wuhan, the robots will have to work tirelessly at all hours of the day.

O’malley said the robots are in China, you can do more than provide the medicine is, however. Some are able to scan a medicine in the inventory, and to remove obsolete inventory. Others will be able to spray with pesticides, and you can even help prevent the spread of infectious diseases and in public areas.

“Robots will be able to help with the clean-up and reduction of human-to-human transmission of risk from the exposure to the limit,” O’malley said. Artificial intelligence is likely to be useful in the information science aspects of the management of information on the distribution of the cases and to determine risk profiles and the identification of methods to reduce broken when we have a better understanding of how it is distributed.”

THEY ARE WEARING THE CORONA VIRUS MASKS IN CHINA

An example of this is the GermFalcon bots can be used for the cleaning of the aircraft. On the inbound flights from China to LAX, lately, it’s a disinfectant, bots are used in ultra-violet scans to make sure that the aircraft is not infected, according to Elliot Kreitenberg, the co-founder and co-chairman of the GermFalcon. (It says the bots are to be used by a human being.)

“The GermFalcon it makes use of strategically placed lamps to provide a high dose for all high-touch surfaces,” Kreitenberg said.

Gilead Science is said to be working on a cure for the corona virus, and in the Corner it says that the robots could be useful in the development process. The company has not responded to Fox News ‘ request for more information.

According to a number of drug discovery services in connection with the corona virus, it would not be as quick or effective, unless the bots have a sample to test.

JD Logistics has been the use of medications, the delivery of the robots out of the hospitals as well. They will be working independently and be able to navigate through the traffic. The first bone to the Wuhan’s Ninth of the Hospital earlier this month with a plan to make daily deliveries.

Angle says that an outbreak, it creates complexity, it is very difficult to know who is infected and how to proceed with caution yet its immediacy. Robots to help you, because they will be able to complete the everyday (often complex) tasks is to help the true star of the health care workers.
