VIRUS-KILLING robot developed to fight the Coronavirus

Robot Violet

This Coronavirus pandemic is extremely tough to stop also because the Covi-19 is highly transmissible. Masks, gloves and proper outfits are essential to fight the spread. However, disinfecting hospitals and medical structures is also essential.

Akara Robotics (AR) devised a clinically proved robot that kills viruses and bacteria. Ultraviolet light (UVC) is already well-known for being effective against viruses and AR was effective in developing a robot using this technology. The name is Robot Violet, and it was already tested in a hospital in the Dublin area and it seems that it will be useful to tackle the Covid-19 pandemic.

The inventor, Dr. McGinn, commented: “This system could reduce dependency on the use of chemical-based solutions, which may be effective but requires rooms to be vacated for several hours during sterilization, making them impractical for many parts of the hospital,”
