Aersol Infectivity: “This is what people have been clamoring for,” said Linsey Marr, an expert in airborne spread of viruses who was not involved in the work. “It’s unambiguous evidence that there is infectious virus in aerosols.” - infectious virus at 16 ft.
Airborne Transmission shown up to 26 feet: outbreak in German meat processing plant. Transmissions took place over long distances in air-conditioned working areas
How does it spread?
While there is a lot to learn about this new strain, the CDC reports most commonly spread from an infected person to others through:
- the air by coughing and sneezing
- close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands
- touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your face before washing your hands
- rarely, fecal contamination
In 2016 our AHPCO technology underwent rigorous testing by MICROBAC labs on live Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS). Laboratory access to live MERS is both rare and expensive. The study found a 99.998% kill rate of MERS on surfaces after 4 hours. The Polar Ionization technology has also been tested for killing SARS. Our iAdapt was also tested for killing 99.99% of airborne H1N1 in just 20 minutes which has been a far worse killer each year in the US.
