The Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi officially put into operation a disinfection chamber at the airport’s operation center on March 24 as an effort to curb the spreading of the COVID-19 epidemic.
The device was invented and assembled by young engineers of the Noi Bai Aviation Technical Service Centre during only three days.
Its main component is a 360-degree mist sprayer using anolyte solution which is a powerful disinfectant against bacteria and viruses. The disinfection spraying process will be automatically activated once a person steps in the chamber. It only takes 30 seconds to complete a round of disinfection.
Nguyen Duc Hung, Deputy Director General of the Airports Corporation of Vietnam and Director of the Noi Bai International Airport, said that after successful production of the first chamber, the airport will continue researching and installing more disinfection chambers at its subsidiaries and terminals to serve passengers.
Noi Bai airport is willing to share the technology with other companies in need, he added.
By March 24 morning, Vietnam recorded 123 COVID-19 cases.VNA
