Recently our Dutch customer Westdijk shipped 10 COVID-19 test centre containers to the UK. The test centres are produced by Siemens and are 45 foot high cube reefer containers that have been converted into test containers. The test centre containers have been named ‘Nightingale’ after Florence Nightingale!
The containers all have a waiting area, a little hall and a test examination area with a lung scanner. Medical staff can immediately establish if the lungs are affected and further action needs to be taken by the hospital staff.
The units are relocatable to be deployed anywhere in the UK and the first unit came into use at the University Hospital of North Tees on 30 May.
