Emergency Anti-COVID-19 Medical Ward

Posted by edn.world

Difficult Prospect to Workable Solution

Hospitals are filling with coronavirus patients. Hotels, gymnasiums and public buildings also begin to fill and more emergency patients are on the way. There is a deep need to build extra medical wards rapidly with no fuss! These wards must provide care in different urban situations such as parking spaces, industrial open spaces, shipping yards or army bases. They need to be temporary, outdoors, and should not damage their surroundings by anchoring or digging foundations into their surfaces.

If your city has a shipping port, or container yard, it will surely hold a vast number of shipping containers that could provide a solution. Here is a dynamic suggestion for how to rapidly build an “Emergency Anti-COVID-19 Medical Ward”. Its advantages are many and in this challenging time, it introduces a path from difficult prospect to workable solution.

Responding to Any Scale of the Medical Operation

The Emergency Anti-COVID-19 Medical Ward easily responds to any increase or decrease in demand and changes in conditions. Here is one example of ‘parallel deployment’ with 28 containers for 100 patients. It shows how easy it is to start the medical ward, and its outstanding potential for rapid future extension. There is a minimum of workload at the building-site with no interruption to medical operations already underway. If a re-location of the facility is required, it is a lot easier to achieve than with other more conventional structures. This emergency medical ward fits any urban situation in any city in the world.
