Food, due to its high handling, is more prone to contamination. This damage not only occurs when it comes into contact with the customer and the seller, but it can also occur at any stage of the food production chain because the products pass from hand to hand and from place to place, so it is necessary to perform its disinfection constantly at least 3 times a day. Currently, it has been identified that at the production stage, food can be affected if contaminated freezers are used either for washing, packaging, or cooling. During the slaughter process, microbes surrounding the slaughtered animal can end up in the final meat products. If any microbes contaminate the food processing lines, they can spread and affect other foods in contact. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), it is estimated that around 600 million people worldwide fall ill from contaminated food every year and 420 000 die from contaminated food; Therefore, it is proposed the design of a food transport and virus disinfection machine that will be composed of a mechanical chassis, which contains four wheels for industrial transport and support 1 conveyor belt that will be controlled by a remote control system, and communication between patient and nurse by means of a Tablet, controlled by an application for better communication and to maintain the distance by established protocols. The machine will have the ability to disinfect food either with or without wrappers, and the Tablet will allow the nurse to know if the patient has any discomfort or any inconvenience when giving food through the machine, which proposes a control system and communication through the application, as well as the sink that will have the machine for proper cleaning and disinfection of the patient's hands, managing to reach a design proposal for a food transport machine and disinfect bacteria or viruses in the environment.
