Global healthcare experts and virologists agree - airborne, aerosol transmission of viruses poses a significant threat.
A person can become infected through direct contact with a person or object carrying the virus or by air.
Part of the answer is that, whilst we are programmed to clean surfaces and wash our hands, we tend to overlook something that’s more influential in causing illness: the air we breathe!
Whilst germs, viruses and bacteria do eventually land on surfaces, they first travel in the air, and that's when we have the greatest chance of inhaling or even swallowing them and becoming sick.
Air is infected by individuals when they sneeze, cough, talk - or simply breathe. A single sneeze can launch a cloud of infectious droplets. The smallest and most dangerous are called droplet nuclei. These tiny terrors stay airborne the longest and travel the furthest. When inhaled, their microscopic size often allows them to bypass our body's natural defences and penetrate deep into the lower respiratory system, where it can take just one to three airborne viruses to cause an infection.
What better way to protect yourself and others than by ensuring the air we breathe is clean by trusting HEPA filter technology? HEPA filters do not work like a sieve. The reality is that HEPA filters can capture ALL particle sizes and more than 97.8% of pollutants at 0.1-0.15 microns, based on IBR Laboratories test data.
