“On Friday, a patient with coronavirus was transported by rescue helicopter to a hospital in Nordland. The EpiShuttle made it possible without risk of infecting personnel and crew on the helicopter. – Until now, we have generally had limited opportunity to protect the crew against the virus. A contagious patient onboard a rescue helicopter could have grounded an entire crew and put them in quarantine for 14 days, says Roy-Inge Nygaard-Jensen, head of the 330-squadron of the Royal Norwegian Air Force in Bodø.”
