A medical robot manufactured by the Military Technology Academy to support COVID-19 prevention and control activities was sent to the current largest pandemic hotspot in the northern province of Bac Giang earlier this week.

The robot, called “Vibot,” is the result of a scientific research project conducted by the academy since April 2020.

It has been piloted in Bac Thang Long Hospital and the second facility of Bach Mai Hospital with positive results.

In Bac Giang, Vibot will take the charge of transporting food, medicine, necessities and other stuff from outside to patient rooms, taking trash from the rooms to garbage collection areas, and allowing remote conversations between the patients and their family members. — VNS
