Innovation of Upgraded Negative Pressure Cabinets for Efficient COVID-19 Screening Processes

Many inventions have been created to solve the various problems arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. The innovation of negative pressure cabinets plays an important role in reducing the risk of spreading the virus between medical personnel and other patients through coughing and sneezing. This invention functions in a similar way to quarantine rooms which use negative and positive pressure with separate ventilation systems. There is less air pressure inside than outside the room. Airflow is controlled to prevent germs [...]
