COVID-19: NYSC member invents thermometer in Nasarawa



A NATIONAL Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member, serving in Nasarawa State, Taiwo Durodola has invented a body temperature-reading device.

  In a statement issued yesterday, NYSC’s Director of Press and Public Relations, Adenike Adeyemi said the device named, T-Smart does not require human intervention while in operation; adding that it can also be monitored remotely.

  “In response to the challenge thrown to their creative ingenuity by the NYSC Director- General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, arising from COVID-19 pandemic, Corps Members have taken up the gauntlet, and continued to amaze Nigerians with so many inventions, tailored towards stemming the spread of the virus in the country,” Adeyemi said.

  “In the past few months, some corps members across the length and breath of the country have come up with a number of inventions in response to the challenge thrown by the NYSC helmsman, hence; underscoring the centrality of the scheme as catalyst for unity and national development.”

  Continuing, “devices such as disinfection chambers, pedal- operated water, soap and sanitiser dispensers have been invented and donated to the federal and state governments, as well as some communities, as part of efforts by the National Youth Service Corps to battle COVID-19, which regrettably remains a formidable enemy that must be defeated.”

  He lauded the ingenuity of corps member, Taiwo Durodola, serving in Nasarawa State for taking the fight against the virus a notch higher through the invention of T-Smart, a body-temperature reading device to boost the current efforts to contain the spread of the virus across the country.

  “It is highly sensitive and accurate, with a resolution of 0.02 degree Celsius, which makes it possible to detect the smallest change in human body temperature as invented by Durodola to curb the spread of coronavirus.”

  Adeyemi advocated for patented and mass-produced of the new invention, as corps members have the capacity of earning foreign exchange for the country.
