Cao Junjie refashioned a cat carrier to make the sealable pod which he hopes will keep the child safe from the virus.
A Reuters report said that the customised pod includes an air quality monitor that shows the carbon dioxide concentration in the air.
Speaking to Reuters, the 30-year-old said, “Because of the epidemic, I spent a month making this baby safety pod for my kid … It can provide a safe and comfortable environment for the baby.”
