Many researchers around the world have proven coronavirus to be airborne, which means it can stay suspended in the air for a long period of time.
As the scientific community continues to grapple with Covid-19 attempting to demystify and indeed find a sure-fire treatment for it, the continual eruption of mutants and variants around the world has made the disease even more enigmatic and intractable. While vaccines of all kinds and forms developed by global as well as local pharma companies have provided some sort of a potential shield against the dreaded virus, there is no hundred percent guaranteed protection yet for people anywhere in the world.
Additionally, ever since the confirmation that the virus can even be airborne and transmit through the fine aerosols in the air remaining much longer and traveling much farther than estimated earlier, the potential to infect and intensify the contagion has increased manifold.
So, even as vaccines and other forms of treatment are being developed to eliminate the virus within the human body, the imperative to inactivate and neutralize it in the air is equally pressing. And among the limited number of technology options that have come to prominence in recent times, ultraviolet (UV) light technology is one potent option. When UV is used as a germicidal agent to neutralize microbes, ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) emerges as a relevant term. With credible research establishing now that the transmission of the coronavirus occurs more in indoor spaces than outdoors, the role of UVGI technology has become even more critical.
Technologies that must be adopted to keep our indoor clean & safe?
Based on the extensive research and experience in the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) space, air purification has proven to be the most effective way of eliminating all kinds of harmful particles including PM10, PM2.5, PM1.0, bacteria, virus, odor, VOCs and other pollutants from the air you are breathing. No other measure provides as instant an impact as air cleaning technology provides, eliminating even the minutest hazardous pollutant from indoor air. Some of the leading technologies that must be adopted to keep our indoor clean and safe include ECF, FMAP and UVGI.
Why should one prioritize the Sanitization of Indoor Air In the Wake Of COVID-19?
Many researchers around the world have proven coronavirus to be airborne, which means it can stay suspended in the air for a long period of time. It has also been observed that coronavirus can ride on the back of PM2.5 pollution particles and get transmitted faster and to much longer distances. In fact, the airborne transmission route of coronavirus is proving to be the most prominent one. To top it up, air-conditioned spaces are at a much higher risk of the virus spreading as they usually lack ventilation, re-circulating the same air indoors. Given all these facts, sanitizing indoor air must become a priority for all kinds of indoor spaces, especially public ones like schools, hotels, offices, gyms, restaurants, etc.
