Robots Are Fighting the Coronavirus


(upbeat music) This robot could mean a possible breakthrough for healthcare professionals who screen for and treat the coronavirus. Researchers at one of China’s most prestigious universities have designed this robot that can perform ultrasounds, act as a stethoscope, and conduct mouth swabs. Since the robot has cameras, doctors don’t even have to be in the same room as the patient, let alone the same city. The idea for the bot came about after researchers decided they wanted to contribute to fighting the deadly virus. They say one of the biggest issues is doctors becoming infected. The bots use the same technology as space stations and lunar explorers, but developers say they don’t want to make it fully automated because patients still need that human element of a doctor’s comfort. Researchers say the feedback from doctors who had used the robots has been good and they’d like to build more than the two they currently have. The bots cost more than 72,000 U.S. dollars each and university funding has run out. For now, people are urged to take precautions like frequent hand washing to prevent the spread of the virus and staying home if you feel symptoms.

    Why is everyone acting like the coronavirus is bad? Ok, in China it’s kind of bad, but no where else, and even in the places where it is bad, barely anyone has died. There’s the slightest chance you will die from it, but the flu and even heart disease is more likely to kill you. It’s just like pneumonia, or a bad cough. You will be sick for a few days but everyday get better and better until you forget you have it. It’s not a big deal people.
