Senegalese engineering students fight coronavirus with inventions

There are some cool things being done by people in surprising places. The following article came from Al Jazeera.

Students at top Dakar school turn skills towards easing pressure on hospitals with innovations such as medical robots.

Engineering students in Senegal have joined their country's fight against the coronavirus pandemic with inventions such as automatic sanitiser dispensers and medical robots.

The students attending a top engineering school in the capital, Dakar, have turned their technical skills towards easing pressure on the wards - and they are already in talks with hospitals over some of their innovations.

One example is a small robot, dubbed "Dr Car", which will be able to measure patients' blood pressure and temperature, according to students from Dakar's Ecole Superieure Polytechnique (ESP).

1. That would be such a help for nurses.

It takes time to do a set of vitals every few hours on every patient on your roster.

Hooray for engineering students for designing something very helpful!
