UK’s DASA seeks rapid sanitising technology for ambulances

The UK's Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) has released a call for rapid sanitising technology to speed up the time it takes to clean ambulances in-between carrying patients.

Currently, it takes up to 45 minutes to sanitise an ambulance that has carried a Covid-19 patient.

DASA says the ideal solution could be used outside of just ambulances and would also be able to sanitise 'buses, trains, and other blue light services or even in hospital wards/rooms.'
