Intelligent steps to undertake and some preventive measures to stop the spread of airborne disease. And its myths about ACs spread coronavirus? Respectively its challenges and solutions
Airborne disease can spread when people with certain infections cough, sneeze, or talk, spewing nasal and throat secretions into the air. Some Intelligent steps to undertake and some preventive measures to stop the spread of airborne disease are
- Avoid close contact with people who have active symptoms of disease.
- Stay home when you’re sick. Don’t let vulnerable people come in close contact with you.
- If you must be around others, wear a face mask to prevent spreading or breathing in germs.
- Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Use a tissue or your elbow to cut down on the possibility of transmitting germs on your hands.
- Wash your hands thoroughly and often, especially after sneezing or coughing.
- Avoid touching your face or other people with unwashed hands.
The major challenge is to stop community spread of airborne diseases, and we believe that the product we are promoting at the moment called UVHEAL SAFEAIR. UVHEAL SAFEAIR, an in-duct disinfectant for continuous air supply for central air conditioning systems, is the best solution for such problems. The modular design of UVHeal SafeAir, allows you to get the best solution for your requirements. Each and every system is designed using CFD (computational fluid dynamics), and designed on the basis of exposure time, and UV dosage required to disinfect a particular pathogen. Air disinfection takes place through the air being forced by natural convection into the irradiated region of a UV disinfection device. The air then passes through the UV rays from the germicidal lamps within the UVHEAL SAFEAIR system. The right dosage of UV rays render the airborne microorganisms, such as viruses, bacteria, yeasts and fungi, inactive by disrupting their cellular membranes and by damaging their DNA or RNA, thereby rendering them ineffective to infect humans. Uvheal SafeAir provides a range of Industrial Ultraviolet Disinfection Systems that prevent the spread of airborne bacteria, viruses and mold within public areas. Public places like airports, hotels, corporate offices, hospitals, movie theatres etc. admit not only thousands of people on a daily basis but also several airborne microorganisms.
