MINTIE TECHNOLOGIES  ASSISTS TO CONTAIN

MERS VIRUS THREAT IN SAUDI ARABIA

 

            Los Angeles, CA – For the past two weeks, Los Angeles based Mintie Technologies, Inc (MTI) has been mobilized in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in response to the MERS Coronavirus outbreak.  Mintie is providing temporary patient isolation for hospitals receiving suspected patients and supporting the urgent need for expanded isolation facilities.

            The Mintie Environmental Containment Unit (ECU2) mobile isolation system is designed to convert standard rooms to Airborne Infectious Isolation rooms (AIIR,) using a collapsible mobile ante room and negative air machine.  This rapid response technique allows hospitals to respond immediately under heightened “life and death” alerts.

            In addition, on Saturday, June 1, Michael Rollins, the EMEA Market Manager for MTI  is leading a one-day emergency conference sanctioned by the Saudi Ministry of Health (MOH) Infectious Diseases Directorate at Saad Hospital in Al Khobar.  Attending will be officials from 25 MOH Public and Military hospitals from the Eastern Province, together with a number of the specialist private hospitals in the region and will include infection control, engineering, environmental services and hospital directors.  The program is an interactive educational workshop designed to provide practical knowledge and planning resources for rapid and CDC compliant outbreak rapid response.l 

            Speakers include Dr. Sameah Tawfik, the  Deputy Head of Infectious Diseases for the MOH in Riyadh and Dr. Nadira Abbas Albaghli, the Director of Infection Control for the Eastern Province, which has been the epicenter of the MERS virus cluster outbreak in the region.

            Additional conferences are in planning for Riyadh and Jeddah in advance of the forthcoming Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, when over 2.5 million pilgrims converge upon the sacred sites of Mecca and Medina.  Mintie ECU systems have been deployed in Mecca hospitals during the last two Hajj seasons.  The capability for expanded patient isolation resources is further heightened during this period of the MERS threat.

            As the Hajj is one of the largest mass gatherings in the world calendar, it places an unprecedented pressure on healthcare resources.  At a recent conference, Dr. Margaret Chan, the Director General of WHO, said that the MERS virus was “now her greatest concern.”  Working in consultation with the WHO, the Saudi Royal Family, the MOH and Hajj Committee are undertaking extraordinary steps to ensure the safety and care of the Pilgrims.

            Kevin Mintie, CEO, and Jim Mintie, EVP, principals of Mintie, the parent company to MTI, have extended every available resource to the Saudi MOH and is proud to be in a position to contribute to the well-being of patients and visitors during this critical time.  Mintie is a third generation, family owned and operated business since 1940.  For additional details on the company, please visit www.mintie.com.
