Yogesh Kumar Sahu said he and his two friends built the robot, and it took around Rs 5,000. The robot can be connected directly from the internet and then it can be operated from anywhere. Doctors can interact with the patients through a camera in it, and prescribe medicines.

"We learnt to make this through YouTube. The fact that I'm electronics & telecommunication student helped too", he added.

Sahu further added that the specialty of the robot is that one can talk to it. He urged all the state governments and Centre to provide them funds so that they can make more of this robot that can help people, especially doctors and nurses amid this pandemic.
