Malang university students invent disinfection chamber to prevent COVID-19 spread

first_imgThe mechanical engineering student added that the liquid disinfectant used in the chamber was made from herbal ingredients and non-flammable alcohol, which are safe for humans.Malang administration cooperated with Brawijaya University to procure 70 SiCo chambers, each valued for Rp 2 million (US$126.75), to be installed in various spots across the city.“Malang health agency would provide the liquid disinfectant. The mobile chambers would be available to be borrowed by those who need them,” Malang regional secretary Wasto said.East Java Governor Khofifah Indar Parawansa on Friday declared a state of emergency in the province in an effort to contain the COVID-19 outbreak. Malang and Surabaya were also declared “red zones” as 175 people in Surabaya and 74 others in Malang were suspected of having contracted COVID-19.“The state of emergency is to be enforced for an indefinite period,” Khofifah said on Friday, as quoted by Antara news agency. (trn)Topics : Students of Brawijaya University in Malang, East Java invented a disinfection chamber to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the area, which authorities have declared to be vulnerable to a disease outbreak.The device, called the Sikat Corona (corona scrubber) or SiCo, is a two-meter-high, one-meter-wide chamber covered by a transparent material and equipped with a nozzle to spray disinfectant.Syahrizal Maulana, one of seven students working on the chamber, said it could be operated manually or automatically. The manual chamber, which requires a human operator, is suitable for indoor usage. Meanwhile, the automatic one is suitable for outdoor usage in public places, such as parks and markets, because the chamber would automatically spray disinfectant whenever a person enters it.“Current methods of disinfection mainly depend on the availability of human operators. This can be ineffective as it would create long queues of people waiting to be disinfected,” Syahrizal said.Read also: Regions close schools, cancel public events because of COVID-19The chamber holds seven liters of liquid disinfectant that can be used for 15 people at most. It takes five seconds to spray disinfectant on one person.last_img read more

Hull apply to FA over name change

first_img The move, which is being fought by a group of fans, has been prompted by owner Assem Allam, who believes the new name would be more commercially successful. A Hull spokesman told Press Association Sport: “We have sent a letter to the Football Association this week asking for them to consider our request to change the club’s playing name from next season.” Hull have formally applied to the Football Association to change their playing name to ‘Hull Tigers’ from next season. Allam has already changed the company name to Hull City Tigers but he needs the permission of the FA Council to change the club’s playing name, and the “City Till We Die” protest group is opposing the plans. Allam has offered to refund any of the club’s season-ticket holders who are unhappy and has previously said he considers a Tigers brand to be more marketable, and the word “City” to be “lousy” and “common”. The 74-year-old Egypt-born businessman, who moved to Hull in 1968, also caused controversy earlier this month by saying of the critics: “They can die as soon as they want, as long as they leave the club for the majority who just want to watch good football.” Hull manager Steve Bruce believes Allam should be granted his wish. He said last month: “I can understand [the unhappiness] because in our country especially we are really big traditionalists and a lot of people have supported the club since the year dot, where it has been Hull City AFC. “But the owner has come in and he’s in a different culture and for the money he has put into the club if he thinks Hull Tigers is his way forward then we have to respect it. “If he asks us to play in pink and white stripes on Saturday we have to do it because without him there wouldn’t be either a Hull City or a Hull Tigers.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
