A new international health station will open in Guangzhou to help curb the spread of the COVID-19. Indoor scenes of the rooms in the stations unveiled recently. These rooms are equipped with star-rated hotel’s professional configuration and intelligent service facilities. The station is expected to be officially put into use as soon as late September.
“Intelligent station” with no-contact service
The process of quarantined personnel arriving at the station from customs and the airport will be unmanned. Medical detection, nursing and room service in the station will also be digitized and intelligent. At the same time, temperature measurement, disinfection, form filling, food delivery, medical waste collection and other artificial links are all achieved through information technology.
The rooms of the international health station are basically in a simple design, with an area of 18 square meters, 27 square meters and 36 square meters. There is a QR code scanning area at the door of the room, and people can enter the room by scanning the QR code.
Each room is equipped with a health monitoring system, with a screen that shows the specific conditions of people in isolation, including temperature data, nucleic acid test results, physical condition and so on. Staff can conduct video chats through the system, while people under quarantine can also use one-touch dialing, health reporting, intercom services and other functions through the system in the room.
The duty center of the station is equipped with master intercom, and each quarantine room is equipped with an extension intercom. If there is service demand, people can call the duty center with one-touch dialing service. There is a “help button” in each washroom, and quarantined personnel can call for help at any time. That avoids direct contact and reduces the risk of cross infection.
Convenient transportation and good environment
There is no dense residential area around the heath station. It’s close to Yanziling (燕子岭) and Liuxi River (流溪河), so, the ecological environment there is ideal.
The station is located in Zhongluotan Town (钟落潭镇), Baiyun District. It covers an area of about 250,000 square meters and provides with 5,000 rooms for quarantine and 2,000 beds for logistic service personnel.
The station is made up of 11 areas, each of which is equipped with medical staff and hospital infection management specialists. It will provide fever clinic, comprehensive clinic, blood purification center and laboratory to provide high-quality medical service.
The station is about 20 kilometers away from Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, and the driving time is about 25 minutes. It takes 40 minutes to drive southward from the station to Guangzhou Eighth People’s Hospital – the hospital designated for coronavirus disease patients in Guangzhou. Besides, the station is also close to the Mali station of Line 14 of the Guangzhou Metro.
The station is not only China’s first international health station, but it also employs artificial intelligence. As a large-scale transit station for overseas returnees, it will greatly reduce the risk of transmission in densely populated urban areas.
