During a press conference held this morning, the Minister of Labor, Rolando Castro, announced that soon El Salvador will have two robots donated by a Canadian businessman, with whom he spoke as part of his tour in that country, as part of the program of Labor Migration.
«We reached an agreement for a donation of a robot for the Rosales Hospital and another for the Benjamin Bloom Hospital, from a company that manufactures robots in Canada used to sanitize the best hospitals in Canada,» the minister stressed.
These are two robots that have the latest technology in disinfection for hospitals, which is why the Rosales Hospital and the Benjamin Bloom National Children’s Hospital will be used.
«Our argument to the businessman who will donate them was that our poorest people in our country arrive at these two hospitals,» he reiterated.
The Parlacen deputy, Carlos Hernández, also attended the tour in Canada and assured that it was a successful and enriching trip that highlighted the articulation of efforts between institutions.
«Robots are disinfecting all operating rooms in Canada and the United States. We are talking about the most modern in operating room disinfection. These robots are very expensive, but for El Salvador they will be donated », he explained.
