  • At the start of the pandemic, the advice from national Governments was hands, surfaces, masks, social distancing and perspex screens.
  • In July 2020, 239 scientists came together with compelling evidence that coronavirus was airborne.
  • Following this warning most health authorities’ added ventilation to their guidelines and more recently Carbon Dioxide monitors (CO2).
  •  It has also been scientifically proven that 100 million coronavirus particles can fit on a pin head and all the coronavirus in the world can fit in a coke can.
  • Ventilation can reduce risks by increasing air circulation but…

  • If you consider 100 million particles of Coronavirus can fit on the head of a pin, the virus will not disappear out of the window once opened.
  • Dilution of air can be slow and time consuming and we often don’t know how long a room needs to be ventilated for.
  • CO2 Monitors can also help to reduce risks by….

  • playing a useful general indication that areas/rooms may not be adequately ventilated but …..
  • are Co2 monitors telling you the obvious, there are a lot of people in the room and the ventilation is poor? So now you already know what you knew and what you need to do!
  • As they monitor CO2, they can’t tell you if the virus is in the air and you have to remember that…
  • air quality is affected by the number of people in an indoor space, their age and metabolic rate, so the more crowded a venue, the longer it will take for CO2 levels to reduce or dissipate when you increase ventilation.
  • CO2 monitors are not effective in large spaces, they work best in small mid-sized spaces regularly occupied by several people.
  • What is the missing link?

  • Inactivating the virus in the air is the missing link.
  • Irish solution Novaerus air dis-infection technology can do exactly that and can work alongside ventilation and CO2 monitors to mitigate risks further.
