  • The virus, which causes an illness known as COVID-19, has actually spread out to 169 nations, and the bulk of infections and deaths are now outdoors of China.
  • As the break out spreads, robotics are being used to disinfect, take temperatures, and even prepare food.

    Worldwide, robots are being used to minimize the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, by taking on cleansing and cooking tasks that are considered unsafe for humans.

    The around the world death toll of the coronavirus illness that originated in Wuhan, China, is now more than 17,000, and the virus has infected more than 398,000 people. On March 11, the World Health Company (WHO) formally stated it a pandemic. The virus has disrupted travel worldwide, leading to flight cancellation s, quarantines, and other breakdowns in motion and supply chains.

    Take a look at some of the smart ways robotics are used around the globe to slow the spread of the coronavirus and aid health care workers.

  • In Wuhan, where the outbreak began, a robotic spraying disinfectant moves through a residential area of the city.
