This negative-pressure ward will feature technology that creates 100-per-cent fresh air for the safety of medical personnel and controls the temperature and humidity in line with the World Health Organisation and Centres for Disease Control and Prevention standards.
Every bed in the ward will also be equipped with a high-tech pollution control system, ensuring patients breathe disinfected air.
Though Phramongkutklao Hospital already has enough beds to accommodate Covid-19 patients, it has decided to renovate its old emergency ward in case the number of patients spikes.
