With the novelty of the coronavirus, there has been a lot of misinformation shared about it. These false or inaccurate statements add to the uncertainty people are feeling and make it more difficult to know how you can protect yourself. Pure is committed to keeping you informed about COVID-19 and how our products can help you and your organization stay safe.
Airborne transmission of the virus poses the greatest threat.
Respiratory droplets are microscopic and float through the air when we talk or even breathe. These droplets contain the virus and because they are imperceptible, they enter our eyes, nose and mouth without us realizing it. Almost all coronavirus infections occur by these means.
Pure air-filtration systems have been proven to filter particles down to 0.007 microns in size, which is much smaller than the virus. The COVID-19 particle is 0.1 microns in size. This means they can capture and contain COVID-19 to prevent it from continuing to circulate through the air. Read more about Pure’s air purification here.
Surface transmission of the virus is possible.
While airborne transmission is by far the most common, it is possible to contract COVID-19 through physical contact, if a person touches their face immediately after touching a surface or object contaminated with the virus. These events are rare but there have been documented cases of infection that were caused in this way.
Because surface transmission presents a small but serious means of infection, sanitization and handwashing remain critical. Pure’s product used to provide shielding of a surface has proven to provide on-going, residual protection against viruses and bacteria after application.
Chronic respiratory conditions make the virus more dangerous.
Most people who contract the coronavirus experience mild symptoms and will fully recover but certain populations, including the elderly and those with preexisting conditions, are more vulnerable. Asthma, allergies, COPD and other chronic illnesses that compromise lung function can make symptoms worse and lead to deadly complications.
Pure’s 7-step treatment process eliminates 99.99% of viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew and other irritants from the environment. While not a cure for these chronic conditions, Pure technology can help make it easier for people living with them to breathe comfortably.
Masks and social distancing are the best way to stop the spread of the virus.
There is no single method that can completely prevent or eliminate transmission of the virus; rather, a multilayered approach is needed to reduce the transference as much as possible. Pure’s anti-viral and anti-microbial protection can help supplement social distancing protocols by reducing the presence of the virus on surfaces and in the air.
