English term or phrase: negative-pressure room
Definition from Kaiser Family Foundation:
Rooms specifically designed for patients with contagious diseases that contain any circulating air in the room and prevent it from being released into any other part of the hospital.

Example sentence(s):
  • Engineers have made rapid improvements to Wellington Hospital's intensive care unit (ICU) - converting a new six-bed extension into a large negative pressure room and building two new air locks in just a few days. Such work could normally take months from planning to completion. NZ Herald
  • Sheriff Javier Salazar has confirmed one inmate at the Bexar County jail will be tested for COVID-19. According to Salazar, the inmate has some signs of the flu and will be tested soon. In the meantime, he has been put in one of the four negative-pressure rooms at the jail. NEWS4SASA
  • "But what about when you have dozens that coming in over the day? And it's not just the COVID-19 patients. It's the flu patients, it's the coughs and the cold symptoms that we're seeing every single day multiple times a day," Miller said. "When you first see them, what are you going to do with them? You can't put them all into that negative pressure room that the ER has." FierceHealthCare
