We all have been thinking about our health and the health of our family more lately. Adding an air purifier to your ducted HVAC system can help reduce sickness and improve air filtration.
The air purifier we carry is called The Protector. Though it hasn’t been tested specifically on the coronavirus (especially since this outbreak is so new), it has been tested on other viruses, illnesses and bacteria. These tests concluded:
- Kills 99%+ of Swine Flu on surfaces
- Tested and approved by the Chinese Government for protection against the SARS virus
- 99% reductions of Ecoli, Listeria, Strep, Tuberculosis, and Bird Flu
- 97% airborne bacterial reduction
- Makes air filter 10x more effective
In this article, we will tackle the most frequently asked questions about The Protector’s impact on Coronavirus.
What is Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
According to the World Health Organization, “Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV).” The WHO further explains that, “COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus. This new virus was unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.”
Are test results available for The Protector on COVID-19?
There is not currently testing specifically on the Wuhan Coronavirus (COVID-19). The manufacturer of The Protector is evaluating testing options with partners in both U.S. and China. As there are a limited number of facilities capable of testing for this virus, their focus is on prioritizing testing as it relates directly to the recent outbreaks.
Is The Protector technology effective at reducing COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a member of the enveloped RNA coronavirus (subgenus sarbecovirus, Orthocoronavirinae) subfamily. While there is not testing specifically on COVID-19, there is a validated test results showing 99+% reductions on similar viruses. These viruses, like COVID-19, are also ‘enveloped’ or protein jacketed virus types. If The Protector can reduce these virus types, an assumption could be made that we would also be effective at reducing the current coronavirus at hand. However, it’s important to note that we make no medical claims.
