Abstract

Introduction:  Following the pandemic, screening suspected individuals on a large scale is imperative to curtail the disease's spread to enormous proportions. The walk-in kiosk is an ideal example of an innovation that is time and labour efficient and safe to use. Methodology and review of literature: Embase, Google Scholar, and Pubmed were used to extract scholarly articles about the subject published worldwide. The Walk-in kiosk concept was an idea taken from the biosafety chamber used in the advanced microbiology laboratories. Results: This ergonomic design enables the HCW to perform better without bending forwards or reaching out for the oropharyngeal or nasopharyngeal swab. It avoids a great deal of inconvenience for both the HCW and the patient.
