In europe many lives have been lost to the COVID-19 disease due to health workers being overworked and this can reduce their efficiency especially in keeping precautions when working with sick people.This device does some of the work they do.
This device reduces workload on the already weak and overwhelmed health system by assisting practitioners in dispensing of drugs and water remotely in quarantined centers .The device facilitates consultations as it talks to the patient and provides a platform where notifications are sent from the health worker to the patient via sms or video teleconferencing as it has a camera which can also detect fever . In an emergency, it can detect any falls,noises without being implored and also when a button is pressed. Finally,it sterlarises itself using U.V light.
