The Inflatable Bubble Tent would be the main pod to isolate patient during the quarantine as well as the balloon would be a symbolic expression to celebrate the end of the pandemic. The main concept is to provide a suitable space containing necessary facilities for quarantine with the advantage of keeping the visual connection. Taking into count the following.
Full Isolation: The tent will be totally isolated with the gap-air edges from PVC material. WC with Shower to prevent the patient from using the home toilet.Connectivity: The patient visually connected with family members through the transparent PVC is very essential for the whole family and the patient's psychological health.
Safety: The sterilized delivery window is the only connecting point between the patient and others. To deliver food, water, and medicine, so the patient should keep a minimum distance of 1.5 m from the window during the receiving.
Relief: Providing all necessary items for the temporary accommodation during the quarantine like single bed, chair, table, private toilet, shower, internet, and fresh air outlet.
