Some brilliant students of Obuasi Secondary Technical School’s robotic team with the assistance of their teacher have manufactured a hand sensitive veronica bucket.
The inventors explained that the veronica bucket is to encourage regular hand washing to limit the chances of contracting the virus following numerous confirmed cases.
As of now, Ghana has in 11 days reportedly recorded 24 cases of COVID-19 with one death making existing cases 23.
Demonstrating how it works, one of the students placed his hand underneath the tap and water began flowing.
Immediately he finished washing his hands and pulled away, the water stopped running.
“This is a COVID-19 prevention electronic bucket…the main aim of designing this bucket is to allow people to avoid touching tap of the bucket since the virus can be transferred when an infected person touches the bucket,” he said in the video.
