DELTA offers to the Ministry of Health two state-of-the-art portable negative-pressure chambers

DELTA joins the national effort in the fight against Covid-19 by supporting the Ministry of Health. The support comes in the form of two portable negative-pressure chambers which can isolate and transport Covid patients without putting medical personnel at risk. In case of an emergency, when a Covid patient has to be moved from an island to the mainland, air transport is the only viable solution. However, in order to protect the lives of both the patients and health workers, a portable negative-pressure chamber should be used.

Until recently, the Emergency Aid Centre had just one such chamber available, with a possibility of only two medevac flights per day. The addition of two new chambers greatly expands the Emergency Aid Centre’s capabilities.
