PAN Jing, chairman and chief executive of TMiRob, likened the company’s disinfection robots to “automatic fire extinguishers” for their role during the coronavirus epidemic.
He still remembers a hospital in Wuhan, when three engineers and three of TMiRob’s robots disinfected 3,000 square meters in 72 hours, allowing surgery rooms and other medical facilities to operate in safety.
“No one knew how to disinfect wards with a multi-drug resistant bacteria environment,” Pan said in a phone interview with Shanghai Daily. “Robots freed other staff from the time-consuming work of disinfection, safeguarding doctors, nurses and patients in an efficient manner.”
