Some countries have received a sudden and direct hit of COVID-19 and thus lack of medical supplies has occurred in those countries. There is a significant shortage of negative pressure isolation rooms for COVID-19 Patients with the most serious symptoms and because of this, the death rate keeps rising at a fast pace.[1]Until the vaccine or cure for COVID-19 is developed, preventing COVID-19 patients from death is more realistic. The early stages of COVID-19 should be used to secure treatment for COVID-19 patients with severe symptoms as mandatory lower the death rate, also negative pressure isolation room is clearly necessary, otherwise we are likely to see a large second wave of COVID-19.We scrutinized the national medical center of South Korea's database to find a new way to manage the expected shortage of NPIR(negative pressure isolation room).
