Coronavirus “floats” in the air: How you can reduce the risk of infection in the office thanks to professional humidification

Restrictions are loosening. Offices are also getting fuller with workers returning after working from home. However, if you rely solely on distancing regulations and masks to contain the corona virus, there is a high risk of infection. It is especially in closed office rooms with low humidity that the risk of infection lurks in the form of so-called aerosol particles, i.e. tiny exhaled infectious floating particles. This is why physicist Roland Netz from the Berlin Freie Universität recommends professional humidification. This means the droplets cannot shrink so quickly and tend to sink to the ground as heavier droplets.

Town halls, retirement homes, libraries and museums are gradually returning to normal. But the virus is still around, and anyone who relies solely on distancing rules and wearing masks to ward off infection face a high risk of infecting themselves and others.  Especially in closed office rooms with low humidity, the risk of infection lurks in the form of so-called aerosol particles, i.e. tiny infectious floating particles that are exhaled. That is why physicist Roland Netz from Berlin’s Freie Universität recommends professional air humidification. In this way, the droplets cannot shrink as quickly and are more likely to sink to the ground as heavier droplets.

Notebooksbilliger.de opening its Munich store with innovative corona protection from Trotec: TAC V+

It’s been in the air for a while! ´The Robert Koch Institute has now also confirmed that the coronavirus spreads via the air in a room[1]. In order to reduce this risk of infection, PC retailer, Notebooksbilliger.de, is using more stringent coronavirus protection measures in its reopened store in Munich, even measures that go beyond the legal requirements. Trotec’s new TAC V+ high-frequency air purifier is designed to protect customers from airborne infection by filtering infectious aerosols (tiny saliva particles) out of the air in the room. According to scientists and virologists, aerosols are one of the main sources of infection for the coronavirus. If, on the other hand, the air in the room is permanently and effectively “cleaned”, in short time intervals, the risk of infection via aerosols released when speaking or coughing is significantly reduced.
