Once home to the biennial Singapore Airshow, Changi Exhibition Centre has been repurposed into a community isolation facility to house recovered COVID-19 patients and patients displaying mild symptoms.
This remodelled indoor facility can accommodate about 2,700 patients.
The outdoor area is also undergoing construction and eventually, it will increase its capacity to up to 4,400 patients! That’s really amazing!! 😍😍
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.
There are 2 shifts per day with 20 to 30 healthcare workers from Raffles Medical Group.
There are also consultations via teleconsultation stations to diagnose patients who show persistent symptoms.
As a form of entertainment, volunteers will communicate through roving telepresence robots that are remote-controlled to engage with patients virtually.
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! 💖
