Robots trying to protect shoppers from COVID-19 in Thailand

AKIPRESS.COM - Tapping his little metal feet on the spotless shining shopping centre floor, K9 the robot is ready for work, Sky News reports. 

Designed to look like a boxy, black machine dog, previously he had been used to provide entertainment at music concerts.

He is one of a team of robots being used by a Thai high-end mall to help keep shoppers safe from COVID-19.

After being closed for almost two months, shopping centres in Bangkok began to reopen last weekend as the country continued to slowly ease its lockdown measures.

For the past two weeks, daily confirmed coronavirus cases have mostly been in single figures, with a total of 56 deaths since the outbreak began.
