Worried about the spread of Coronavirus? A five-foot tall (1.5 meter) Promobot might have your answer.

The robot with a friendly face rolled into Times Square to help provide information about the new virus.

​How does it work?
Curious passersby stopped, filled out a short questionnaire on an iPad-like touch screen attached to the robot’s chest, and even had a conversation with the machine.

​Who is the creator?
Promobot was created by a Philadelphia-based startup that makes autonomous service robots for businesses and is run by a group of Russians.

“We did a special software to detect coronavirus symptoms,” the company’s chief business development officer, Oleg Kivorkutsev, told. “We understand how this problem is important, how people are nervous, people are afraid of this. But if they understand a few, simple things, for example, what symptoms coronavirus has, what they should do to prevent (it), everything will be fine and everyone will be happy.”

​What it actually does

​What it actually does

The robot does not actually detect the virus. It asks if a person has common symptoms such a fever and the person has to hit “yes” or “no” on the touch screen, after which they receive a reassuring message if they chose no.

“This thing is very clever. It’s really, really clever,” said Tara Healy, who was visiting New York from London.

​Opinion
Others were not so easily impressed. “A bit mental,” said Thomas McAlinden from Scotland. “But sums up New York for me.”
