(CNN) Rwanda has introduced robots as part of its fight against coronavirus.

With 314 confirmed cases of the virus as of May 22, the East African country has enlisted the help of five anti-epidemic robots to battle the virus.

The robots were donated by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) to the Kanyinya treatment center that treats Covid-19 patients in the capital city, Kigali.

The robots -- named Akazuba, Ikirezi, Mwiza, Ngabo, and Urumuri -- were received by the country's Minister of Health and Minister of ICT and Innovation last week.

They will be used for mass temperature screening, monitoring patient status, and keeping medical records of Covid-19 patients, according to Rwanda's Ministry of ICT and Innovation.

Keeping healthworkers safe
The robots perform a number of tasks relating to managing coronavirus. They can screen up to 150 people every minute for symptoms of the virus such as high temperature and dry cough.

According to Dr. Daniel Ngamije, Rwanda's minister of health, they also have the capacity to capture sound and visual data of patients and can notify health workers on detected abnormalities.

"These robots will perform temperature screening in our treatment centers. The robots will detect people walking in not wearing masks so that with the voice, the command post can quickly be informed and respond," he said.

More than 90,000 health workers worldwide have contacted the Covid-19 in the course of treating affected patients. To reduce these numbers, the Rwandan government wants its health workers to have limited physical contact with patients under their care.

The robots have the capacity to deliver medicine, food, and other essentials in place of frontline workers to Covid-19 patients undergoing treatment, Ngamije said.

They are programmed to communicate properly and can also educate health workers and patients on the dangers of the virus and how to stay safe, he added.

Robotics engineers from the UNDP will train staff of the Rwandan Ministry of health on how to use the robots so they can put them to work.

Think before you speak. Read before you think

Reading brings us unknown friends

A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies . . . The woman or baby girl who never reads lives only one.

Reading is a discount ticket to everywhere

If it's by Robots, Covid-19 will not be in The IS, UK, China, South Korea, Japan ,etc..

It's not by Robot!!!

Paul Kagame has been in power for almost 20 years just like many African leaders, but he has really transformed his country positively.
Although he has so many human right abuses charges against him, but considering the level of accelerated development he brought to his country after a bloody genocide, one can easily overlook all his atrocities against opposition.

Before some of you start comparing Nigeria with Rwanda, I want you to know that Rwanda's landmass is not bigger than Anambra state. And its population is about 13 million people. So Nigeria has many challenges compare to Rwanda.

Good day every one my name is Joshua i seriously need help am calling on medical practitioners or any one with solution to save a brother.
Am 25 years of age and for as long as i can remember i have been living with CHRONIC DEPRESSION mine is genetic cause my dad has it too but handicapped by the situation cause his not a learned person.
To cut it short, i came to realize i have depression during my Industrial training as that stops me from performing well and associating with people around me ,all i do is to sit alone, see nothing good about my self, sad and lack of motivation.It has been like that since my primary and secondary school i wasn't disturbed as at then because i never knew what was wrong with me until last year during my I.T when i was sacked as a result of my cold attitude and inability to perform. Am seriously disturbed cause i see no better future for me living with depression as it deprives me of the ability to talk, express my self and be confident.
I have tried so many doctors and have been placed on different antidepressants such as SSRI, SNRI and others but none seems to work for me apart from TRAMADOL which has a very high tolerance speed.i have google all i keep getting is that it has no cure but the effect of tramadol has kept be going, cause i strongly believe that if i can feel normal with tramadol there is hope.Apart from that ,life is not worth living for me .
So i deemed it fit to write here.please if you have any idea of what i can do weda by traditional pills or foreign to help me out of this hole of depression i will sincerely appreciate and will forever be grateful to you for the rest of my life. Please help
