Even though the way back to normality will be very long, it is also clear that the extraordinary confinement measures cannot last indefinitely.
During April, some countries began to relax lockdown and confinement measures, in that effort, governments are publishing guidelines and protocols for gradual reopening ‘return to work’ to reduce the risk of contagion and to transition into a period where economic activity coexists with COVID-19.
It is indispensable to plan for the phase when the Member States can restart economic and social activities while minimizing any impact on people’s health and do not overburden health care systems.
Indeed, Deconfinement is not an easy task without taking into consideration some protection measures.
In the light of the protection measures announced. People should avoid gathering by not going back to the workplace at the same time, with an initial focus on less endangered groups and sectors that are essential to facilitate economic activity.
Furthermore, social distancing should remain largely in place at least 6 feet (about 1.8 meters) apart from anyone they encounter outside their homes, and face masks are compulsory in public spaces.
Moreover, at the workplace, occupational health and safety rules imposed by the pandemic should be observed.
Deconfinement requires decontamination, and sterilization of public places is crucial, especially in banks, schools, hospitals, and airports, etc.
Robots tend to be the first option that can alleviate the burden and perform a convenient job, such as Disinfection Robots that can sterilize a whole room in 30 minutes.
Besides, Temperature Robots are vital in the case of human-virus-carriers, in which they can be set in the entryway of any establishment and provide accurate temperature check. Also, it can sense abnormal human temperature.
In addition to that, there are more sophisticated designs that even distribute hand sanitizer while measuring temperature, and it has facial recognition features, more human engagement, and a safe way to assure a well-secured deconfinement process.
