The coronavirus has caused massive death around the world, and the number is still increasing. Not to mention those suspected cases without diagnosed. And CDC has confirmed that the virus is contagious and spread mainly from person-to-person through droplets.
And the virus has a latency period. Even if there is no sign of an illness, it could be possible that the person is already infected.
Let's take a man that never put any protective gear on and was diagnosed a few days after for an example. He takes public transportation, goes to the office supermarket and then comes back home as he did every day. No significant symptoms lead to neglect of epidemic prevention. After days of such frequent movements, he is diagnosed to be a carrier of COVID-19.
He could be the Patient Zero, who was also called the "Super Carrier". Or he could be infected during his way to the office, or when shopping in the supermarket. Most importantly, he have put thousands of people in danger. This also makes it difficult to trace the source and pathway of the infection. That ’s why the government is calling on people to reduce unnecessary movement.
Here is a graphic showing how this happens.
In a way, wearing a mask doesn't have to mean that you are sick. But to better protect yourself from getting infected.
The making of a "Super Carrier"
Is it really overreacting to wear a mask or restrict unnecessary movement? That is no longer an issue to argue. In addition to preventing yourself from being infected. Proactive quarantine should be taken once symptoms show. What governments and citizens should do is to take essential precautions to prevent it from spreading even wider.
All processes from production, sales and transportation have all returned to normal. Not only our design and sales teams are ready to offer robust clearspan tent solutions. Our production team is also fully committed, to ensure that the relief shelter tents are delivered to infected areas as soon as possible.
And second hand used tents including the “A” frame tent and high peak gazebo are also available to provide READY TO SHIP solution.
Shelter is well prepared to fight together with you against the virus.
Solution 1: Small fabric tent in widths of 6 - 10m with no walls on both gable ends for a check.
Solution 2: High peak gazebo canopy in 4-10m width.
Solution 3: Emergency responder shelter - Inflatable triage tent.
Throughout the world's efforts in epidemic prevention and control, what people most concerned about are:
That’s the reason why mass testing is crucial. To find out those suspected cases with initial symptoms.
As we all know, cough, fever, and diarrhea could be the early symptoms of an infection.
Therefore, temperature checks and disinfection should be taken nationwide in every neighborhood to prevent a larger outbreak.
Specimen collection should also be carried out at the same time to promote vaccine development.
Once fever or other symptoms are showing, those suspected cases should be sent to the fever clinic for further inspection immediately.
Tests including temperature and white blood cell count, flu test should be taken, and CT scan for the ground-glass appearance of both lungs and PCR test if necessary.
Solution 1: Inflatable hospital tents in 5m/6m width.
Solution 2: Large fabric tent in width of 10m - 20m with fabric sidewalls
Solution 3: small cubic box for in 2.4m x 2.3m x 2.4m (LWH) with 2 beds for isolated sleeping units.
Apart from setting checkpoints for rapid diagnostic test for virus (COVID-19) detection. Temporary quarantine isolation zone should be set as well in those crowded places such as office buildings, downtown shopping malls, train stations, airports, hotels, theater and etc.
Passengers that suspected to be the carrier of COVID-19 needs to stay isolated from others and undergo further medical evaluation and viral particle detection test.
If necessary, segregated accommodation areas can be provided before local hospitals take over the cases.
Once the test result is positive, regardless of whether the patient is very badly ill, they should be isolated to prevent the virus from widely spreading to other family members, neighbors.
Once diagnosed and confirmed of an infection, those patients should be isolated from old people or kids that have weaker immunity and accept professional medical care. A responsible government should never leave their people behind.
When a large-scale outbreak occurs, and the public hospitals are overwhelmed. And a rapidly deployed hospital will be greatly in need.
Clearspan tents without poles can make the most of a space to set beds and medical care equipment. And partition walls can be used to separate areas including the emergency room(ER), doctor's office, general ward.
Thus, a fully functional hospital can be completed in days. Improve response speed, isolate and provide treatment to infected patients at the early stage.
Solution: Temporary storage tent in width of 10m - 30m.
In order to prevent residents from going out, and guarantee the supplies of daily necessities at the same time. Temporary storage tent can be established next to the community to facilitate the storage and distribution of canned food, hand sanitizer, and cleaning products.
In order to provide medical services to patients in a more timely manner, temporary drug and medical device warehouses can also be established next to temporary hospitals to storage face masks, protective gear and medical examination equipment such as portable CT scanner, etc. It not only facilitates the work of medical personnel but also earns valuable time for first aid.
And racks can be set to make the storage better organized.
Shelter is the professional clearspan tent manufacturing company that has rich experience in offering temporary space solutions to cover all fields. To complete our emergency relief shelter system, Shelter has developed 2 product lines to meet different requirements.
This is a war without smoke. We must and will win this as working together.
