The Robots

Five humanoid robots have been delivered to Rwanda to assist in both patient screening and delivery of foods and drugs to those suffering from COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus.

BBC reported that the country’s health minister, Daniel Ngamije made the announcement on Tuesday May 19. He also disclosed that the robots were brought in to reduce the exposure of health workers to COVID-19 patients.

Ngamije Said;

"We need additional robots for other duties like disinfection in public space and we are working to get them."

The 5 robots which were named Akazuba, Ikizere, Mwiza, Ngabo and Urumuri, are manufactured by a Belgium-based company.

Rwanda's health ministry says the units have a number of abilities, including:

Screening 50 to 150 people per minute

Recording and storing patient data

Alerting health workers to abnormalities

Warning people who aren't wearing marks, or are wearing them improperly
