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.
