Making pharmacies & co. fit for crisis means locking out viruses in order to be able to guarantee the maintenance of medical care in times of epidemics and pandemics.

This is already common practice in hospitals. Here, infectious patients are spatially separated from others by structural changes. In addition, the air in the clean/virus-free area is mechanically ventilated and filtered in a controlled manner. A slightly higher air pressure also ensures that no air containing viruses enters the clean room via potential leaks. These measures also have a positive effect on protection against already known and common viruses.

Small changes in pharmacies and doctors’ practices can therefore already provide relief and help to contain the spread of viruses.
