Rwanda Gets Robots That Can Test ‘150 People Per Minute’ For Coronavirus

The Rwandan government has taken delivery of 5 humanoid robots which can screen and deliver foods and drugs to those suffering from Coronavirus.
BBC reported that the country’s health minister, Daniel Ngamije made the announcement on Tuesday May 19. He also disclosed that the robots were brought in to reduce the exposure of health workers to COVID-19 patients.

Ngamije said;

"We need additional robots for other duties like disinfection in public space and we are working to get them."

The 5 robots which were named Akazuba, Ikizere, Mwiza, Ngabo and Urumuri, are manufactured by a Belgium-based company.
Rwanda's health ministry says the units have a number of abilities, including:


  • Screening 50 to 150 people per minute
  • Recording and storing patient data
  • Alerting health workers to abnormalities
  • Warning people who aren't wearing marks, or are wearing them improperly
There are two Coronavirus treatment facilities in Rwanda, one is on the outskirts of the capital Kigali and the other in the south-eastern town of Nyamata.

The country has so far recorded 308 confirmed cases of Coronavirus, 203 recoveries and no deaths.
