Scientists, supported by the White House Office of Science and Technology, will hold meetings to discuss potentially enlisting robots for the fight against Ebola. Robots can “perform even some of the tasks of a human, such as waste removal or the burial of bodies,” according to The New York Times.

What’s standing in the way is the lack of required technology, according to the International Business Times.

Meanwhile, six more people who traveled to the US from West Africa are in quarantine because of their Ebola risk. The family will be watched for 21 days. Ebola has claimed more than 4,500 lives in West Africa, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
