Airport in Hong Kong trialling sanitising pods

The CLeanTech pods claim to fight against coronavirus in just 40 seconds by using sanitisation spray and nano needles.

It takes less than a minute from having your temperature checked on entry before you step out of the other side.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the airport, said: "The interior surface of the channel is equipped with antimicrobial coating which can remotely kill virus and bacteria on human bodies and clothing by using the technologies of photocatalyst and 'nano needles'. Sanitising spray is also applied for instant disinfection."

The airport are also trialling autonomous cleaning robots.

Fitted with a UV light steriliser and an air steriliser, these robots can work around the clock, with their focus on areas more likely to be a place for COVID-19 to harbour.

Steven Yiu, Deputy Director, Service Delivery of the AA, said: "The safety and wellbeing of airport staff and passengers are always our first priority. Although air traffic has been impacted by the pandemic, the AA spares no effort in ensuring that the airport is a safe environment for all users. We will continue to look into new measures to enhance our cleaning and disinfection work."
