    Introduction: Human corona virus infection disease (COVID-19) has resulted in a global pandemic affecting millions of people. The maximum risk of spread of infection is during transport of these infected patients within hospital or to a hospital. Materials and Methods: An idea of combining negative and positive pressure systems to devise a portable batteryoperated, vacuum chamber for transport of infected and non-infected patients was adapted in devising a transport chamber. The chamber was used for transport of COVID patients as trial run following which swabs were taken from inlet and outlet to rule out virus contamination of the chamber. The relatives accompanying the patient and healthcare workers (HCWs) involved were also tested for corona virus. Results: The pressurized protective transpor.. View More»
