Delta Manufactures Medical Containment Pods for U.S. Armed Forces
Posted on Apr 28, 2020 07:20 pm
Teams from Delta’s Technical Operations division are converting 40-foot shipping containers into reusable hospital care pods that can be attached inside U.S. military aircraft.
The units are intended to help quarantine service members who have contracted COVID-19 abroad and assist with safe and secure transportation of individuals back to United States.
“Across our many teams, our Delta people have quickly shifted their focus to apply skills to meet whatever need our partners or our communities have. The entire Delta family is humbled by and proud of their efforts,” said Mike Moore, Delta’s Senior Vice President of Maintenance Operations in a company press release.
Pods feature HEPA filtration to prevent spread of the virus and can fit up to 32 stretchers.
