Cork University Hospital is to receive a special Covid-19 cleansing robot.

CUH is one of 31 hospitals across the EU to benefit from the device which is being funded by the European Commission.

The robot can disinfect a standard size patient room in 10 minutes by using harmless ultraviolet light.

Tim Hayes of the European Commission says the robot puts Cork University Hospital at the forefront of science in tackling the Coronavirus.
