Considering the high infectivity of coronavirus, Toyota has specially developed a special car for patients with COVID-19, which has become an individual vehicle. This special ambulance was designed for Showa University Hospital in Japan in accordance with the requirements of Showa University Hospital in Japan and local medical facilities and contains many unusual features.

Donated Car – Toyota HiAce, a light commercial vehicle sold in Japan and other markets. The flexibility of the car was fully reflected: although it is sold as a truck. It can also be used as a spacious and luxurious alternative to small trucks, taxis and traditional SUVs.

However, for Showa University Hospital, the focus will be different. Toyota said that given that coronavirus is particularly toxic and easily transmitted by airborne droplets. Its main goal is to create a vehicle that controls the circulation of airborne droplets.

Toyota’s solution is to install an internal barrier in the HiAce to divide the car into two spaces. The front part is separated from the rear part by the driver’s seat and the front passenger seat, and the air is continuously sucked out of the rear space by an exhaust fan. This helps prevent air circulation into the front cabin.

Of course, this is not the only place for COVID-19 for seriously ill patients. The car also has an electric forklift that can be easily moved in and out. In the car, this space is narrower than in the average American ambulance, but there is still enough space for the necessary equipment and space for medical personnel.
