Doctors and medical staff aren't the only ones taking part in the battle against the coronavirus outbreak.

At the Guangdong Provincial People's Hospital in Guangzhou, several robots have been deployed to assist nurses and physicians with their treatment of quarantined patients. 

The domestically designed and made intelligent robots are able to carry out a variety of tasks. From traveling door to door delivering medicine to patients, to also being able to collect any waste or items that need to be disinfected. 

The robots are serving as a worthy partner for doctors and nurses alike.

Yet, their biggest benefit is not their programmed software to navigate a hospital ward or to track basic patient information, it's something more indirect.
