Cheap mylar color coded balloons could be used to tether onto or next to homes where ebola patients are located. These balloons could collectively be viewed from a helicopter allowing a visual assessment of ebola cases in a crowded city or spread out

Craig commented on Containment with Disposable Microfiber

great idea,like the hammock format. Could be amazing to provide a way in the design of the hammock for the person to have room to roll to one side so the soiled areas could be rinsed through with water or disinfectant solution.
Wonder if there is a local material that comfortable hammock could be woven out of and if there is an embedded knowledge base to do this? Remembering from a vacation trip long ago that there is a city in mexico famous for their sturdy hammocks could that be a possibility to create a grass roots campaign there for weaving and sending ebola treatment specific hammocks to Africa.
What features would make the best design for the conditions in ebola effected homes or clinics ?

coolio, thanks for input. Will make a simple mock up. Current intention is all that would be required is a large ziploc bag, some duct tape and possibly a little string or wire. Intention would be for this to be disposable with each suit and for it to be easy for anyone to pull together and tape onto the variety of PPE suits being used.
cheers
