VIRUS CONTAMINATION CONTROL

Virus Contamination Control

Millions of viruses dawdle in the air and the surfaces that can easily transmit with a simple contact. Bodily fluids like saliva or mucus can get dispersed into the air as tiny droplets when someone coughs or sneezes. According to scientists, coughs and sneezes can travel several feet and stay suspended in the air for up to 10 minutes and viruses on the surface can survive for hours at room temperature. Also, airborne transmission through small particles (< 5 microns), which may stay airborne for hours and can be transported long distances.

Safe schools everyday

Created 21 December 2020

For a safe school operation, healthy and virus-free air in the classroom is needed to avoid infections and diseases. Viruses, such as COVID-19, can spread through the air in the form of aerosols. Depending on factors including ventilation rates and particulate levels, these viruses can remain airborne for several hours. Indoor environments can experience a higher concentration of aerosols (high viral load), which can increase the risk of infection.
