Rwanda uses robots to protect doctors fighting COVID-19

Kigali, Aug 6 (UNI) Rwanda is using robots so as to ensure that doctors who are treating COVID-19 patients have minimum contact with them, the country's Health Minister Daniel Ngamije said on Thursday.
Sputnik quoted Ngamije addressing a press conference, where he said that the use of robots in the process of treatment of COVID-19 patients has lowered the possibility of health personnel being exposed to the virus "We have some health personnel who have been infected with COVID-19. I think there are less than 10 because we deployed all the PPE [personal protective equipment] measures and different measures were taken to avoid that health personnel be contaminated with this disease. We also use robots to reduce contact of health personnel with patients, those robots are helping us to collect some information, temperature and other information, treatment standards. So, basically we do not have a big issue of health personnel affected by COVID-19 so far,"
World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Director for Africa Matshidiso Moeti added that around 35,000 health care workers were infected with COVID-19 in Africa, most of them (24,000) in South Africa.
