Yesterday One America News posted an article about the use of robots to sanitize places and things to stop the spread of the virus.
The article reports:
A company from Argentina is using robots in the fight against the coronavirus. UVD Robotics has been testing a new product that can sanitize both spaces and objects with ultraviolet light.
On Friday, developers tested the robot on a bus, where it was able to clean seats, walls and floor using just UV light.
According to the World Health Organization, cleaning products with chemicals such as bleach or hydrogen peroxide traditionally are only 60 percent effective against germs. UV light reportedly eliminates bacteria 99 percent of the time.
“Ultraviolet light is a light that the sun emits naturally,” explained CEO Martin Gonzalez. “In this case, we use type ‘C,’ which is very high energy and works by destroying the DNA of bacteria, the RNA in the case of viruses, thus avoiding propagation or spread.”
He added the robot can also be used to protect health care workers, who are being exposed to bacteria in hospital rooms.
What a great idea! You don’t have to clean up chemicals, you don’t have to worry about inhaling fumes, and almost all of the germs are killed.
