With the continual surge in Covid-19 cases making normal life difficult, a man from Assam has come up with a solution to help neutralise disease-causing viruses.
Abhijit Dowarah, who hails from Sivasagar, built the three-stage disinfecting chamber during the lockdown.
In the first stage, a sanitising liquid is sprayed out through different nozzles to disinfect the person standing in front of it. It has a strip of LED lights at the top and also fans attached to it.
In the next stage, an individual’s body temperature is read through a digital thermometer. The thermometer can be adjusted according to the height of the individual and transmits a warning sound in case the body temperature is higher than normal.
The third and last stage is known as “Hot Air”. In this stage, hot air is blown on a person, which helps in killing the viruses as they cannot stand high temperature.
Dowarah has named his creation “V-Fighter” as it fights disease-causing viruses.
The 32-year-old has a history of coming up with creative solutions to everyday problems. He has been interested in building the best out of waste ever since he was only six years of age.
He also has to his credit a women safety device that he built to curb increasing cases of sexual assault in the country. Apart from that, he has also come up with a solution to operate appliances from the ease of mobile phones.
Recently, he had used old television boxes to build makeshift shelters for street dogs to keep them snug during winter and also to protect them from roadside hazards. Dowarah aims to inspire young creators across the country and hopes his inventions are able to create a safer space for helpless animals and humans.
