by Aileen P. Refuerzo / PIO

DISINFECTION -- The city government has setup sanitation tents at the different hospitals, health facilities, and other government offices to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Designed by University of the Philippines engineers and students, the tent is used to disinfect persons especially health and other frontline workers, and volunteers involved in the management and treatment of possible COVID-19 patients. -- Harley Palangchao

The city government began setting up sanitation tents with spray system in critical public areas such as hospital entrances as a mitigation measure to prevent the transmission of the coronavirus disease-2019 (Covid-19).

The sanitation tents “allow the disinfection of persons in public areas especially the health workers, frontliners, and employees who cannot afford to stay at home through sterilization lasting 30 seconds.”

Mayor Benjie Magalong said three of the targeted 20 units fabricated by the City Buildings and Architecture Office were ready for installation at the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center isolation and CT scan rooms and at Lindi Hotel containment area.

Three are for the St. Louis University Hospital of the Sacred Heart and the BGH triage area.

Some units will also be installed at the district health centers.

CBAO Officer-in-Charge Johnny Degay said the technology that uses “low cost, upcycleable household materials” and is easily built was developed by University of the Philippines professionals.

The whole system has three components: the structure or frame, diffuser system, and disinfectant solution.
