No doubt about it, a war continues with an invisible enemy that’s difficult to beat. But, analogous to the Allied victory in World War II, the battle against the coronavirus will most likely be won as an air fight.
COVID-19 is an extremely small virus – about 0.12 microns (a human hair is 50-70 microns). When an infected person coughs, sneezes, or even talks, droplets with the virus fly into the air. Anyone who is within 6 feet of that person can breathe those droplets into their lungs and potentially get sick.
The question is, why are the same old tactics being used that didn’t generate positive results 103 years ago – masks and social distancing – instead of deploying modern technology to overcome the virus that killed more than 675,000 people in the US alone during the 1918 pandemic.
The answer is – companies and governments are starting to turn to air purification technology providers like Purge Virus to reduce “sick building syndrome” and improve indoor air quality at their buildings to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other contagions.
Here’s how it works; a building owner installs ultraviolet (UV-C) or bipolar ionization (BPI) air purification systems in their building’s existing air handling units to clean the air and prevent pathogens from passing into the ducts that supply air to other rooms.
The UV-C technology prevents the pathogen microorganisms from replicating and harming people. The BPI technology continuously saturates spaces with ions that bind to contaminants and then works to neutralize them. Independent research has shown that airborne bacteria and viruses—including COVID-19—were reduced by 99% within minutes of exposure to the systems.
“We look at all the of the available and proven technologies in the world and align them to your building’s HVAC system to help keep people safe while occupying the space,” said Charlie Szoradi, CEO of Purge Virus. “With UV-C, we set out to simulate the disinfectant power of sunlight inside of the ducts in buildings.”
Cleaning the air of germicides and limiting the spread of pathogens may become a world-wide effort among property owners, landlords, and everyday homeowners. Hospitals have been doing this for decades.
Medical experts say as COVID-19 variants continue to surface, vaccines may not achieve herd immunity soon enough, and some form of coronavirus may live on like the flu for decades. The “new normal” may be high-tech HVAC upgrades as part of standard building safety practices.
The true battlefield of WWII was not on land. It was a massive air and sea super-battlefield that stretched for thousands of miles. Victory in this super-battlefield eventually won the war. Combatting COVID-19 is an air war that can be won with the right technology and the service providers who understand how to use the weapons.
