With the coming of a second wave of Covid-19 disease to Egypt, an Egyptian inventor is trying to test the ability of a robot to perform tests to detect the Corona virus by controlling it from a distance.
His invention resembles the shape of a human face, and he can take blood samples to perform the necessary tests, conduct an electrocardiogram, take X-ray images, and display the results with an attached screen.
The young inventor says that he tried to design the robot to be more like a human form, and that he did not want a box-like device to speak with visitors.
He added that his invention has so far received positive responses, and that the hospital visitors did not feel afraid to deal with it, adding, “Quite the contrary, I noticed a greater confidence in it, because the robot is more accurate than humans.”
And “Cira-03”, the corona tests, by fixing the person’s chin and extending a robotic arm to take a swab from the mouth.
The director of the hospital in which the robot is being tested, Abu Bakr Al-Mihi, said that his team uses the robot to measure the temperature of any person they suspect of being infected with the disease.
