IN THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
2. IMPROVING VENTILATION
WHO reported that acute respiratory infections (ARIs) were the main cause of deaths in Cox's Bazar in 2017.
Deaths from acute respiratory infections are partly due to families living in overcrowded, poorly ventilated shelters.
Coronavirus is an acute respiratory infection.
The RSK shelter has a higher roof and improved ventilation at eaves level to reduce the transmission of Coronavirus.
each RSK roof frame is supported by 4 corner posts
Unlike a traditional shelter there is no roof lattice or central support posts lashed to the side beams.
This is a clear space underneath the eaves that greatly facilitates the building of "through" ventilation.
