Indian Institute of Technology, Ropar(IIT-Ropar) Going to Make Portable Air-Tight Rooms to Fight Against COVID19. A team of researches is planing to making these portable negative pressure rooms that will prevent contaminated air from escaping outside. They study the south Korea model to build it.
It is learned that the IIT-Ropar has sent its proposal to the MHRD for creating such isolation room so we can be able to protect or prevent a large papulation from COVID-19 infections.
fro this making of Portable Air-Tight Rooms IIT-Ropar associate professor Dr. Dhiraj Kumar Mahajan said" These rooms ensure that infected droplets do not stay suspended and is sucked out through the ventilation. South Korea has been able to contain COVID-19 through their mobile and drive through testing facilities which have negative pressure rooms. The testing labs and isolation rooms need to be converted into negative pressure rooms"
