After successful pilot period, three mobile disinfection chambers, which is the creation of HCM City University of Technology in collaboration with the Centre of Science and Technology Development for Youth, will be initially set up at the HCM City Youth Cultural House in District 1, HCM City Traditional Medicine Institute in Phu Nhuan district, and the Saigon Union of Trading Co-operatives (Saigon Co.op) in District 1.

The newly-launched disinfection chamber is expected to be installed in COVID-19-high-risk areas containing COVID-19 sufferers, or suspected individuals such as quarantine zones, hospitals, as well as public places like supermarkets, railway and bus stations, airports, offices, schools, and other crowded areas.

The system, according to Hai and the researching team, can disinfect up to 99.99 percent of the virus, which has the size of one-900th of the width of a human hair, that might have still last on surfaces, either the clothes, shoes, or bags.

The main component of wet chamber is a 360-degree fog mist sprayer, combined with an infrared sensor installed inside the chamber that automatically activates the disinfection spraying process once a person steps in.

The system consists of two chambers, both measure one meter wide, two meters tall. One sprays electrolyzed water in the form of droplets while the other directs heat and ozone onto the body of the person.

Its main component is a 360-degree fog mist sprayer using anolyte solution which is a powerful disinfectant against bacteria and viruses. The antiseptic solution of salt ions can help avoid skin irritation and sterilize the user’s nose and throat during inhalation without causing breathing difficulty. (Photo: Vnexpress)
