The widespread effects of the novel infectious Coronavirus have driven a growing interest in finding safe scientific solutions aimed at reducing coronavirus infection and protecting lives.

A Kenyan biomedical distributor-Lynge Holdings—has sourced for a robotic environmental disinfection machine capable of providing extra line of defense in hospitals and public spaces.

The equipment which works through scientifically proven UV disinfection if used together with cleaning provides an assurance of effective disinfection of these spaces which have the potential to spread the virus.

Through partnerships with manufacturers the company is introducing smart robots to be deployed in fighting the microbes targeting areas prone to contamination; the UV & OZONE disinfection robots kill microbes with a zap through exposure to ultraviolet light.

The technology comes as a boost, at a time the country is facing huge increase in covid 19 infections with various efforts being made to contain the spread of the killer virus.

The UV robots can disinfect surfaces and rooms using a glowing UV light and bulbs that emit high-output concentrated UV-C ultraviolet light capable of destroying bacteria, viruses and other harmful microbes by damaging their DNA and RNA, consequently stifling virus multi-plication.

The cutting-edge technology with an automatic disinfectant spray module can be effectively used for disinfecting surfaces and rooms and help in fight against Coronavirus .

The gadget that has been widely used around the world in regular hospital environment cleaning cycle and have been effective in prevention and reduction of the spread of infectious diseases, virus, bacteria, and other types of harmful organic microorganisms.

The UV disinfection robots has been clinically proven to eliminate bacteria and viruses and effectively sanitize ambulances, bathrooms, lockers, garages, restroom stalls, kitchens and even offices.

The device is also effective in killing viruses in vehicles, meaning Kenya’s public service vehicles (PSV) can greatly kill Covid-19 viruses in the vehicles and operate without fear of infections.

However, because exposure to UV lights can be hazardous to humans, the new UV-robotic disinfector solution can be safely used at night or any other time when it’s safe to be deployed.
