The Covid-19 epidemic has affected millions of individuals throughout the globe. The Covid-19 virus has rapidly spread and killed almost four million people throughout the globe. HCWs are included in the infected population due to their interaction with infected patients. This research proposes the use of a low-cost, negative-pressure, full-body isopod. The isopod employs a blower intake to create a vacuum or negative pressure within its chamber. The intake of the blower is additionally equipped with a HEPA filter to ensure that the air exiting the isopod is virus-free. As a result of the negative pressure inside the isopod, ambient air is taken in via an extra HEPA filter and allowed to circulate into the patient. HEPA filtration and negative pressure inside the isopod prevent contaminants from escaping and causing injury to the medical professionals attending to the patient. This isopod might be the answer for hospitals in impoverished nations seeking to safeguard HCWs from the fatal illness, since it is accessible and meets CDC guidelines
