As the government in major affected areas and countries are under lock-down, people who need to be tested for this virus face a major problem in transportation. Therefore, our group designed a mobile sanitized sample collection and testing facility vehicle with improved and optimized facilities dividing the vehicle into two different sanitized area, for patient and doctors with negative pressure and filtered air being exhaust out limiting the exposure of the doctors and preventing public at large from coming in contact with suspected patients by on site sample collection. The implementation of this vehicle will restrict the movements of infected suspects and can collect the samples from their doorsteps or community centres, thus reducing the chances of spreading the COVID-19 virus. 

As the pandemic is contagious and the affected patient needs to be transported in isolation, for this purpose an isolation capsule is designed for transporting the infected patients has been designed meticulously. This isolation capsule is designed to provide medical staff and first responders a safe means to isolate contaminated patients and transport them from one location to another. It uses reinforced flexible vinyl material with antifungal and antibacterial properties for the encapsulation, gloves and pipe inlet are provided to use in need and the capsule uses clamps thus the whole set-up can be mounted on a trolley, ambulances, rescue helicopters and inside moving vehicles. 

Therefore, with all these set-ups, designed equipment, Scientist Beyond Borders group is endeavouring their best by taking advantage of their knowledge, experience and efforts in giving a platform and empowering public at large with updated information and open to use technologies.
