Coronavirus containment pods outside UK Hospitals

CORONAVIRUS containment pods have been set up outside hospitals across the UK in a necessary escalation of the fight to stop the virus from spreading.

It is important to allay public fears when they spot these preventative measures.

This development in the fight to stop the pathogen in its tracks is a necessity.

The Quarantine Pods

Coronavirus quarantine pods have been installed in hospitals across England to help prevent spread of the virus inside hospitals.

Following national guidance all A&E units have been instructed to install the isolation pods as part of a national strategy to defeat Coronavirus, so that anyone attending hospital with symptoms of the virus can be kept away from other patients and avoid causing unnecessary pressure in A&E.

My advice for people who are worried that they may have symptoms of coronavirus is that it is important to stay away from the A&E unit or your GP surgery to help prevent the spread of infection and instead call NHS 111.

If appropriate you will be directed to attend one of the quarantine units where a clinician can see you.

The pods are designed to protect staff and patients inside hospitals from contracting coronavirus.”

These containment and isolation areas have been installed outside major hospitals in England to treat suspected cases of the virus.


The coronavirus, known as COVID-19, has currently infected 13 people in the UK.

Four more victims of the contagion were transported back to the UK yesterday from the out-break on the Diamond Princess cruise ship stationed off the coast of Japan.

England’s chief medical officer

England’s chief medical officer Professor Chris Whitty has told how two of the patients are in the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield, one is in the Royal Liverpool University Hospital and a fourth was taken to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle.

The virus can cause pneumonia.

If you suffer coughs, fever and breathing difficulties you must get in touch with NHS 111 to inform them and you will need to be taken to an isolation pod.

In severe cases the pathogen can cause organ failure.

It is a viral pneumonia, so antibiotics are of no use.

The antiviral drug called Remdesivir may offer a cure.

But stocks are low and so, recovery depends on the strength of the immune system.
