Young India innovates to meet the pandemic challenge
While the unprecedented challenge of dealing with the coronavirus pandemic has authorities’ hands full, tech students and young scientists across India are stepping up to help with innovative solutions. In Kerala, a student mounted a sanitiser spray on a drone to sanitise large areas without human interventions. In Delhi, school students have developed a caregiver robot for under $80 that can dispense medicine and food to COVID patients without danger to doctors and nursing staff. Young entrepreneurs across the country are coming together to make one million face shields. These innovative ideas show how India’s next generation has stepped up to face the COVID-19 crisis.
