The disclosure was made by the spokesperson of the hospital, who said the robot that will distribute meals and medication will begin its duty by the end of month – the robot is called BeamPro, CNN reports.

While briefing media on Wednesday, March 4, the hospital spokesperson said the hospital has 14 suspected cases in isolation. According to the hospital, it housed BeamPro at the hospital’s Centre for Innovation in Healthcare for over three months before the outbreak of coronavirus.
