- A taxi driver has invented a hand-washing system that can be attached to cars to help prevent the spread of Covid-19
- According to him, he did not even finish high school but he still managed to develop this product
- He demonstrated how the device works but said it was hard to estimate how much it would cost to build
A local Ghanaian taxi driver simply identified as Joe has created an ingenious hand-washing invention for passengers to help avoid the spread of Covid-19 in the vehicle.
In a brief interview seen by Briefly.co.za on the personal handle of Vivian Kai Lokko, the gentleman demonstrated how the device works automatically without any form of contact with hands.
Interestingly, when asked what his level of education was, Joe mentioned that he did not even make it to high school
According to the taxi driver, he had to combine lots of miscellaneous items and could not immediately estimate how much it would cost to produce more of the devices.
The device comprises a water outlet that is attached to the side of the car which releases water when triggered from the driver's side, but Joe said he could easily replace that system with a sensor.
It is thought that when this invention is commercialised, it could help a lot to contain the spread of Covid-19, especially once people are free to go about their normal activities.
Many people could not hide their reactions after seeing the video.
