Robots fight coronavirus at Heathrow airport

Disinfection robots have been installed at London Heathrow Airport. This decision was made by the airport management as part of measures to ensure the safety of passengers and personnel during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the BBC.

Heathrow Airport acquired robots that were previously used by hospitals to fight infections. Cars are now moving through airport terminals, disinfecting high-risk areas. We are talking about bathrooms and lifts. These public spaces are the easiest places to get infected with the coronavirus. The process of the robots was filmed.

Robots use ultraviolet light to kill viruses. In addition, their task is to stop the multiplication of pathogens.

Heathrow Airport has introduced other measures in the fight against COVID-19, including anti-virus packaging of baggage, as well as temperature checks on passengers.
