Following the outbreak of coronavirus, the inventor of a plastic tent designed for people to wear to avoid being drenched while watching football matches at stadiums is considering making use of the tent for another purpose.
Cincinnati-based Rick Pescovitz invented Under The Weather Pods in 2010 so people could make use of it at stadiums to avoid getting wet, The Sun UK reports.
Legit.ng gathers that there is consideration that the pod should also be used on planes to protect people from getting infected with the coronavirus.
It should be noted that coronavirus has killed over 400 people and spread across more than 20 countries, including UK, US and Australia.
CEO Rick tried using one of the pods called StadiumPod on a plane, his brother David said.
StadiumPod is designed to fit over the torso and be worn while sitting down as the plastic tarpaulin stops the wearer from being rained on.
David wrote: "My brother thought to see how his StadiumPod, meant for seated spectators at sports games, would work on an airplane.
"He tells me the flight attendant happily took his photo and that the man who sat next to him didn't even bat an eye. Stay safe out there!"
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that following the outbreak of coronavirus in China and other parts of the world, the Asian country had completed building a hospital to treat the deadly virus in Wuhan.
The Huoshenshan Hospital, which was built in 10 days, was completed on Sunday, February 2.
A total of 1,400 medical staff from the armed forces are tasked with treating patients at the medical facility.
