Egyptian inventor trials robot that can test for COVID-19, what does it do?
As the Coronavirus Pandemic rages on across the world, a new information or finding comes to light with each passing day. As many countries still struggle with Coronavirus testing of maximum population, with Egypt facing a second Coronavirus Wave, now a robot may soon be able to conduct the Coronavirus tests as an inventor is trialing a remote-control robot which can test for COVID-19, take the temperature of patients, and warn them if they don't wear masks at a private hospital north of Cairo. Mahmoud el-Komy, who designed the robot, called Cira-03, says it can help limit exposure to infection and prevent the transmission of the virus. His creation, which has a human-like face and head and robotic arms, can take blood tests, perform echocardiograms and X-rays, and display the results to patients on a screen attached to its chest.
