IIT-Ropar to install negative pressure chambers to contain spread of coronavirus

IIT-Ropar will install low-cost negative pressure chambers at government medical centers in Punjab’s Rupnagar district to isolate Covid-19 patients.

The low-cost negative pressure chambers will be developed under the guidance of Dr Dhiraj K Mahajan, an associate professor at IIT-Ropar’s Department of Mechanical Engineering.

The negative pressure rooms are specially designed isolation rooms in hospitals and medical centers, which ensure that the released airborne contaminants do not stay suspended in the air or leak outside and are instead scavenged through the ventilation system.
