CHARLESTON, SC (CNN) – A doctor in South Carolina has created a lean, mean, germ-fighting machine, and he’s using his invention to help fight the spread of Ebola.
The robot, known as Tru-D is five feet tall. You can see it has a UVC light which can break down the DNA of organisms, such as viruses.
According to Dr. Jeff Deal of Water Missions International “The heart of the device are these sensors on top of the device. What these bulbs are, they produce UVC in amazingly high doses.”
The doctor has sent two of the robots to Liberia. He’s planning to head there this week to help train people there how to use the robots.
