This comes as all diagnostic and therapeutic services have been restored at Dubai healthcare facilities.

Smart robots have been deployed to sterilise Dubai Health Authority (DHA)-affiliated hospitals and health centres, it was announced on Tuesday.

This comes as all diagnostic and therapeutic services have been restored at Dubai healthcare facilities.

"Using smart technology makes the sterilisation process thorough, efficient and less time-consuming," the DHA said in a statement on Tuesday.

Kholoud Abdullah Al Ali, project manager and leader of the DHA's Dubai future accelerators team, said the authority is using eight "intelligent robots" to perform UV sterilisation scans in all rooms and corridors at its health facilities.

"The UV robot has the ability to move automatically without the need for human intervention and ensure greater and better coverage of high-contact areas. Moreover, the robots provide 360-degree coverage and can repeat the same process with high accuracy several times," Al Ali said.

"In addition to the ease of use of technology in the daily sterilisation routine, which is especially beneficial for large areas, the robots are very efficient and can complete exhaustive sterilisation of a room within 10 to 15 minutes. This makes the process of infection prevention and control highly efficient."

She stressed the importance of this technique, "which can be used to sterilise many places such as offices, hospital rooms and corridors, operating rooms, warehouses, housing units and other spaces".
