RobotLAB Inc. has launched of a suite of virus-fighting robots to keep schools safe and virus-free, announces the San Fransisco-based company in a press release.

The suite of robots are designed to follow the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) guidelines for safe and virus-free schools. With Dr. Anthony Fauci's expectation that the coronavirus will become a cyclical disease,RobotLab says it's more important than ever to ensure that schools and kids are safe and not spreading infections throughout the community.

"This is not a joke, not a drill. This is real life Armageddon. Our responsibility is to keep our schools and our community healthy by approaching the challenge systematically," says Elad Inbar, CEO of RobotLAB. "We see the devastation this pandemic brings with it to communities, states, countries and the global economy. We have to make sure that we, A, protect our youngest and, B, prevent the viruses from spreading in packed environments like schools."

UNICEF's key messages regarding COVID-19 and virus-free schools involve identifying sick students and staff before they enter a school; demonstrating proper hygiene; and cleaning and disinfecting facilities regularly.

"These guidelines led us to create this unique suite of robots," says Inbar.

In following these guidelines, RobotLAB has created a robot that can identify fevers in large groups of people by measuring the body temperature of up to 200 individuals per minute. Also, it has robots that can also teach proper hygiene in a friendly and interactive way and, as well as robots that spray disinfectant and blast UV light into rooms.

As we can see around us now, the health of our community is far too important. It requires a systematic and meticulous approach, a task that only robots can perform successfully. That's why schools should employ robots with the skills necessary to disinfect their spaces, an approach that offers better quality and cost-efficient protection to their students and staff. With viruses becoming more violent, more infectious, and more of a cyclic thing, our best line of defense is to approach the challenge methodically.
