universal self-isolation. During the epidemic, 21 patients with a confirmed

is going on in other cities", – Shaorshadze said and explained that with
the help of booths people can sanitize clothes that can retain particles of the
According to her, the cabin is an arch, consisting of
a metal frame covered with banner cloth. A barrel with a chlorine-containing
disinfectant is installed next to the cabin. Upon entering the cabin, a sensor
will be triggered, launching special vapor-forming nozzles, which will spray
the substance on clothes, skin and hair.
"Chlorine is quite safe if used in the right and
proper proportion. The substance is not volatile, so it will remain on the
clothes for some time, and the clothes themselves will not be spoiled. There is
a smell, but it will not be so strong", – she explained, specifying that
the disinfectant used in the installation, is inexpensive.

booths are intended for use in shopping centers, at checkpoints of enterprises
