What type of evacuations can International SOS undertake during COVID-19?
  • Patients with medical conditions not related to COVID-19: whereby a patient develops a medical condition that cannot be managed with the appropriate standard in the location they are currently based. For critically ill patients, we transport them via air ambulances - a dedicated aircraft, equipped with a stretcher, ventilators, oxygen, patient support system, medications etc. This provides the patient with advance hospital care even in the air, or what some refer to as "ICU in the sky". 
  • Patients With COVID-19: infectious patients that require transportation on an air ambulance, with a portable isolation unit. In 2003 during the SARS outbreak, we developed the PMIU (Portable Medical Isolation Unit), the world's first solution, which block air infection. To date, we have transported over 100 COVID-19 positive patients with our PMIU.
  • Personnel Evacuation: For entirely healthy individuals who require help to leave their current location because of concerns about exposure to COVID-19 and limited commercial flight options.
