Sumary of HEPA air purifier can significantly reduce airborne COVID-19 particles:
- As COVID-19 restrictions ease nationwide and more people host indoor gatherings, investing in a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) purifier might not be a bad idea, says a University of Cincinnati College of Medicine researcher..
- One of the issues with COVID-19, is when physicians perform an aersol-generating medical procedure any asymptomatic COVID-19 positive patient may release SARS-CoV-2 laden aersols into the air..
- Studies in the medical literature are showing us that we can use portable air purifiers to do a better and faster job of decominating these airborne particles to keep our patients and staff safe.”.
- says Sedaghat who also published studies documenting COVID-19 infection leading to reduced taste and smell in patients and possibly attacking the central nervous system..
- “If people are walking around coughing or sneezing because it is allergy season and by chance they happen to be one of these asymptomatic carriers of COVID-19, there is a danger of transmission in individuals not vaccinated,”.
- “If you want to host larger gatherings you should consider putting the air purifiers into your living room to help decontaminate anything that is released into the air..
- HEPA based air purifiers decontaminate these airborne particles much faster and more effectively than non HEPA filters.”…
