Youngsters actively join fight against COVID-19

In an attempt to contain the spread of COVID-19, young intellectuals in Da Nang city have invented and installed automated hand washing machines at local markets.

Five automatic hand washing machines have been installed at major traditional markets in Da Nang city since March 30. The machines have been made by students from the Da Nang University of Education.

Washing hands regularly and avoiding physical contact have been recommended to  prevent COVID-19. Demand for no-touch hand washing machines is huge. Understanding the situation, local youngsters have come up with this invention. The machines’ appearance is also expected to raise people’s awareness of personal hygiene amid the pandemic.

Besides government efforts, such contributions by dedicated individuals are expected to help Vietnam win the war against the fatal disease./.
