Robot-run disinfection in Baguio

Republika

aguio City’s former Sto. Niño Hospital, housing nearly 300 Covid-afflicted patients, is being regularly sanitized—by a robot.

The machine-controlled disinfection system is done by the “Keno UV-C Robot”, belongs to automation solutions company Robot Activations Inc., designed in Denmark. According to the company’s business development head, Camille Anton-Mendoza, it is made for “large-area disinfection” and can eliminate up to 99% of pathogens in the air and on surfaces, including the virus causing Covid19.

There are also three robot nurses—remote-controlled Logistic Indoor Service Assistants—that monitor patients’ conditions and deliver medicines by rolling to patient beds with a tray. Four units were donated by Saint Louis University alumni.

Sto. Niño Hospital, out of commission for the past 15 years, was converted into a 90-bed isolation facility for patients with mild symptoms. Plans to increase bed capacity to 250 and later in the year, add 400 more, are in the works.
