In early March, the first body sterilisation chamber using ion salt water was released by the Institute of Occupational Health and Environment in collaboration with Hanoi University of Science and Technology.
According to the producers, it takes only 30 seconds to clean a person's body. The chamber is easily removable and transported and has disinfection capacity of up to 1,000 people a day.
The institute's director, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Doan Ngoc Hai, said that the system is designed based on the principle of using an ionized saline solution in the form of mist spraying the whole body to quickly disinfect the body surface. All disinfectant solutions are safe for sensitive skin areas.
"Test results showed that over 90% of bacteria, viruses on the body surface, clothes were completely removed after just some 30 seconds in the chamber," Hai confirmed.
The institute has sold its initiative to a local firm who is selling the product at VND59 million (USD2,565).

Its main component is a 360-degree mist sprayer that sprays anolyte solution, a powerful disinfectant against bacteria and viruses. The process is automatically triggered when a person steps into the chamber. It takes only 30 seconds to complete the disinfection.
