Amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis that has consumed the lives of lakhs of health workers across the world, an engineer from Egypt has built a remote-control robot that not only asks people to wear masks but is also capable of recording their temperature, conducting a Covid test or even X-ray. It is the first of its kind and has been named Cira-03 by its maker Mahmoud el-Komy, a 26-year-old Egyptian mechatronics engineer.
