Can This Robot Keep Hospital Employees Safe From Ebola?
A robotics company is trying to keep patients and hospital employees safe from Ebola.
The Dallas hospital where the first U.S. Ebola patient was diagnosed is using the help of a robot to clean rooms, rather than risk spreading infection through human error.
Xenex CEO Morris Miller was on “The Real Story” to explain how the company’s robot works. Miller explained that the robot uses UVC light, which is 25,000 times brighter than sunlight, to fry the DNA of the bacteria, virus or spore so that it can’t replicate.
Gretchen Carlson asked: how do you clean the robot?
Miller explained that it even cleans itself every time it runs because the light is so strong.
