Covid-19: Kerala hospital installs South Korea-like kiosks to collect samples
The kiosks have built-in gloves, which can be used by health workers as protective shield while collecting throat swab samples
After each patient leaves the kiosks, the gloves and chair are decontaminated with disinfectants and can be reused
ERNAKULAM: A Kerala hospital has indigenously developed a walk-in sample collection kiosk to test patients showing symptoms of coronavirus. The kiosk, modelled on those used in South Korea, does not require health workers to wear protective gear.
