She described the cabin, saying: "the front part of which [the cabin] is transparent and isolated after a patient or a person suspected of carrying a virus enters it. [The cabin] is designed so that medical personnel can perform the sampling process. This way, health care workers can take samples safely while after each use, the ultraviolet light system inside the cabin ensures that the next patient can not spread the virus within minutes."

Locals also praised the cabin for protecting human health.
