A young man in Ghana has come out with an amazing invention that allows water and soap to flow automatically for hand-washing in the fight against Covid-19.
The invention was produced with a normal metallic drum that was simply fitted with a sink, sensors and cables that connect to the solar panel on top.
Once someone places the hand under the tap, the sensor sends a signal for soap to be oozed out on the person's hand and the system is programmed to allow 25 seconds for the person to wash the hands well before rinsing begins.
