BUBBLE / negative-pressure wards


many developing countries and regions can‘t afford to equip sealed negative-pressure wards, which increased the risk of infection for local medical workers. Bubble is a simple negative pressure ward, which can make the air pressure in the isolation zone lower than that in the clean area, and thereby prevent the air with the virus from flowing into the clean area. It is designed to have a double shell filled with air in the middle, thus ensuring that the air pressure of the polluted area and the clean area is always lower than that of the middle inflated area, and there will be no virus leakage whichever side breaks.
