Spain To Use Robots To Test 80,000 People A Day

How Will The Robots Be Helpful
Coronavirus transmits from person to person. The medical doctors and staff are not exposed to coronavirus by employing robots. Furthermore, it makes the process of testing easy.
Also, it reduces the burden on the medical staff. As a result, doctors can concentrate on deriving a coronavirus vaccine. It also helps doctors to manage existing patients efficiently. Robots don’t get tired. Therefore, conducting 80,000 tests a day becomes easy.
Robots will show accurate data with minimal chances of any error. Testing 80,000 people a day can further reduce the risk of transmission of coronavirus. People showing symptoms are screened out.
The Spanish Government has not mentioned how exactly the robots will work. But within a matter of days, the robots will be in use. Furthermore, Spain is the first country to employ robots for testing coronavirus symptoms. Furthermore, robots will use Google Algorithms.
