12 Mar Advance Air Purification System can reduce the Risk of Corona Virus Infection
It has been two months since Chinese health authorities informed the World Health Organisation that there were increasing instances of a new type of pneumonia in the city of Wuhan. There was then a rapid increase in the number of confirmed cases and deaths within a short period of time. The Novel Coronavirus pathogen was identified which rapidly spread to other countries due to its method of transmission (via water droplets emitted from humans as they talk, breathe, cough or sneeze and via touch). On March 11 2020 WHO declared the Novel Coronavirus emergency a global pandemic.
What Are The Symptoms Of Coronavirus?
Coronavirus is closely identified with the SARS infection, and research centres all over the world have been able to utilize this data to create tests to detect the virus. The virus is said to have originated in an open-air seafood market in Wuhan. It causes common cold and flu-like symptoms which can lead to more severe symptoms including difficulty of breathing. X-rays of the lungs of deceased patients confirms extreme pneumonia as the cause of death.
What Causes The Spread Of Coronavirus?
The survival time of coronaviruses such as SARS in water droplets in the air and on surfaces has been studied. Low temperatures and humidity levels allow them to survive for long periods which means any indoor environment is ideal. At high temperatures, they can be rendered inactive which suggests they are most potent during the colder months of the year just like cold and flu viruses. This is the reason there have been repeated MERS epidemics on the Arabian Peninsula exclusively during the cooler winter months. It is expected that the current Novel Coronavirus will likewise display similar behaviour in relation to temperature and humidity. Experts suggest that the rate of transmission of coronaviruses from human to human is highly influenced by the indoor air conditions.
The main method of transmission of Novel Coronavirus is by person-to-person contact. The disease can spread when droplets from the breath or cough or sneeze of an infected person are propelled a short distance (generally up to 3 feet) through the air. The virus also can spread when a person touches a surface or object contaminated with the infectious droplets and then touches his or her mouth, nose or eye(s). Homes where the air is typically heated to 20 to 24 degrees, serves as the ideal environmental conditions for SARS Coronaviruses to survive on surfaces and in the air for a longer duration. This further results into increased transmission via contact with contaminated surfaces.
Advanced Air Purification/Disinfection Technology To Combat COVID-19
Our advanced air purification/disinfection technology acts in a proactive way to combat transmission of all virus types including coronaviruses through the air and on surfaces in any indoor environment (home, office, hospital, care home, gym, car, ship etc). The patented Advanced Oxidation Plasma (AOP) inside our products is distributed throughout the entire indoor space. When the ionized hydro-peroxide molecules contained in the AOP come into contact with any organic pollutant such as Novel Coronavirus they break it down and destroy it and then revert to harmless hydrogen, oxygen and water vapour afterwards. It is effective against odours, bacteria, viruses, mould, gases (VOCs), pollen, dust, and other organic airborne particles. Further it passes a charge off to inorganics and larger particles causing them to clump together and drop out of the air. The result is the cleanest, healthiest air throughout the entire living space and no infection transmission risk within the indoor space. This outcome is a unique and significant benefit given everybody around the world is today concerned about how to top nCv infection transmission. Our technology can help.
