So there are 3 different zones – red, yellow, and green.

In red zone, patients are allowed to move freely in their space which comprises living areas, toilets, laundry facilities, and medical centre.

Yellow zone serves as a barrier to the red zone, where medical personnel and their PPE are subjected to strict checks before they can come into contact with the patients.

Green zone is for medical personnel to work and rest.

Meals will be delivered into an air pressure chamber first before the sleek ST Engineering STrobo Tug robots distribute food! 🤖🍲

Thank you healthcare workers for all the hard work! Let’s hope for all our patients to recover as soon as possible! 💖
