The robots will serve as an interface between doctors and patience thereby reducing human contact that may result in virus transmission.

The robots will not only be deployed to treatment centers but will also be used in public places such as bus stops and shopping centers to check for temperature at entrances.

Rwanda has recorded 263 positive cases of the virus and 136 of them have recovered.
