As health care workers continue to work round the clock selflessly to control the coronavirus spread, organisations as well as individuals are coming up with ideas to mitigate the risk.

In a recent instance, a seventh standard student, Sai Suresh Rangdal, has designed a robot in Aurangabad for contactless delivery of medicine and food to patients.

He said, "The robot is operated by battery and can be controlled by a smartphone.

It can carry items weighing up to 1 kg.

The aim behind designing this robot was to reduce physical contact of medical staff with coronavirus patients and hence reducing their change of contracting COVID-19.
