Robot Pepper from Japan, showed up at his workplace, and greeted the Tokyo governor




Japanese authorities have today started using robots in hotels that have infected the corona virus with mild symptoms, as part of a plan to release beds in congested hospitals.

The human robot Pepper made his debut in his new job, greeting Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike when she entered the hotel. Pepper wears a surgical mask, reminding patients to measure their temperature regularly and advising them to rest as much as possible.

There are doctors and nurses in hotels, and patients have access to applications on computers and tablets, in which they record their temperature and symptoms.

Different, non-human robots - in charge of cleaning, will be in hotel lobbies where patients will come for meals, to reduce the risk of infection. Both types of robots are manufactured by Softbenk Robotics.
 

For patients with mild disabilities, the Tokyo authorities have so far rented five hotels with between 1,500 and 2,800 rooms. One type of these devices is a semi-humanoid robot that is able to speak voice messages, while the other is a kind of autonomous vacuum cleaner, according to CNN.

Virus infection was confirmed in Japan by more than 14,000 people, 432 of whom died.

The Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, said today that the state of emergency due to the coronary virus, which expires next week - will be extended by about a month.
Abe said Japan's health care system is still under a lot of pressure.
