China’s first giant international health station providing quarantine and medical services to all inbound travellers is expected to be put into use in Guangzhou, South China’s Guangdong Province in late September, which could reduce the infection risk during quarantine and replace quarantine hotels, media reports said.
Construction of the first phase of the station has been completed and the first batch of 184 medical staff started working in the station last Friday.
The 250,000-square-metre station with 5,074 rooms is China’s first international health station to replace quarantine hotels, jiemian.com reported according to Global Times.
The first batch of medical staff will work with the help of artificial intelligence equipment to reduce unnecessary contact.
Smart equipment can help travellers to have a temperature check, epidemiological investigation and check in and out, while a screen in the quarantine room can automatically upload health information and conduct temperature checks, with robots providing food and other daily necessities.
