Utah hospital sets up negative pressure tents for coronavirus

March 23, 2020

University of Utah Health has built negative pressure tents outside University Hospital to be prepared if patients with suspected COVID-19 come to the hospital, according to an article on the Fox13 Now website.

The tents are called BLU-MED tents and are completely self-sustaining.

They can run completely autonomous to the hospital itself and are built to withstand any weather conditions including 100 mph winds.

The air inside them is cleaned through HEPA filters and recycled 15-17 times per hour which is well above industry standards.
