People are still dying every day, of covid-19. As of April 1, 2021, approximately 3 million deaths had been traced to COVID-19 globally, with over 2,000 deaths from Nigeria. These deaths are increasing, every hour, as a result of a continuous transmission of the virus among people, and also due to the violations of the covid-19 preventive measures, recommended by the World Health Organisation. However, to save humanity from this novel virus and also to prevent transmission of other future viruses, hence led to the purpose of this paper. This paper introduces an artificial intelligence door as a solution to covid-19 transmission in public buildings. It establishes how 3D sensor, facemask detection camera, infrared thermometer, and sanitizer dispenser will prevent human crowd, reduce violation of facemask rules, identify covid-19 suspects, and ensure hand sanitization respectively, when integrated in a door. The priority of this design is to save mankind.
