Wherever a large number of people meet, there is a high number of visitors or the users of the premises change frequently, it is essential to have infection protection that meets the requirements. One of the fastest and most effective methods for disinfecting surfaces and indoor air is the professional Airozon® ozonisation with the powerful Airozon® 20000 ozone disinfector from original Trotec production: even larger areas can be completely disinfected and infectious germs can be oxidatively degraded at a fast pace. More important than ever during corona times!
Wherever people spend time, invisible occupants they might play host to – like viruses, bacteria and pathogens – are sure to linger too. That means anywhere where high visitor fluctuations are to be expected – typically schools, nurseries, hotels or pubic institutions and transport – should undergo regular disinfection as a highly effective, and therefore indispensable, hygiene measure. One of the fastest and most effective methods for disinfecting surfaces and indoor air utilises ozone – here with the new professional Airozon® 10000 ozone disinfector.
The coronavirus has not only put numerous hotels and restaurants in a situation of veritable existential threat. The landlords of holiday homes, guest rooms and indeed providers of furnished accommodation in large cities, all of whom had previously had no problem renting out their apartments via Airbnb or such sites, are now also suffering under the crisis.
It has been suspected for some time, but has now been confirmed by numerous virologists: the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is not only transmitted through droplet infection, but actually in large part via inhaled aerosols. These particles, which are ejected when breathing and speaking, are tiny and, due to their light weight, float invisibly in the room air for up to several hours.
Air purifiers are currently in demand as never before. They filter house dust, pollen, mould spores or bacteria from indoor air. In times of corona, many of these devices are also offered as a wonder weapon against the corona virus. Or they advertise air performance that could only be achieved without any filter at all. With this in mind, below we give you an overview of what to consider when buying an air purifier.
During the coronavirus pandemic, dangerous untruths, recommendations and superficial knowledge spread like wildfire on social media. For example, air conditioning units are branded as “virus spinners”, while fans are advertised as offering protection against infectious aerosols in the air – regardless of whether the window is open or closed. Which of these statements is true? What do you need to know about air conditioning units and fans in connection to the coronavirus? Let us explain below.
The extent of the risk of infection with corona virus is currently still evident in nursing and retirement homes that are particularly in need of protection. Only a few days after the general lifting of the ban on visiting nursing homes, 31 people in a Düsseldorf nursing home are now infected with the corona virus. In another senior citizens’ home in Langerwehe (Düren district), 33 residents and 19 employees have tested positive for the virus in recent weeks. Other cities are currently testing the residents of their homes across the board, as random tests also revealed symptom-free infections in the beginning. Renewed bans on visits have been imposed, and there are now also stricter hygiene rules and protective measures for the nursing staff.
Book stores and libraries are open again. After seemingly endless weeks, bookworms can finally borrow books again and stock up on new reading material. Unfortunately, visitors will often have to wait longer for new and coveted books, DVDs or other loan media, as these are “quarantined” by corona.
Virologists and dental associations are in agreement: very small infectious particles (so-called aerosols with a size of approx. 0.3 – 0.4 μm) present in indoor air are one of the main causes for the rapid spread of the coronavirus. In his recommendations for dealing with the corona pandemic in schools or comparable institutions, Prof. Dr. med. Dieter Köhler writes: “Corona viruses are mainly transmitted via respiration; coughing and sneezing are less significant as compared to bacterial infections”.
