Kiosk for COVID-19 Sample Collection (COVSACK)

COVSACK - COVID Sample Collection Kiosk is a kiosk for use by healthcare workers for taking COVID19 samples from suspected infected patients. Patient under test walks into the Kiosk and a nasal or oral swab is taken by health care professional from outside through the built in gloves. The Kiosk is automatically disinfected without the need for human involvement, making the process free of infection spread. The shielding screen of kiosk cabin protects the health care worker from the aerosols/droplet transmission while taking the sample. This can reduce the requirements of PPE change by health care workers.
