There is a lot of information going around about the corona virus, with not all of it being factual. So there is a possibility that this information is not 100% accurate, especially since there is still a lot that we do not know about the virus. This information we are going to discuss is at least something to think about and to keep in the back of your head when it comes to protecting yourself and your family.
There have been some reports of scientists have found traces of the virus in the ducts of hospitals. Yes, hospitals. It’s very scary to think about! A study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association recently. The study looked into a Princess cruise ship in California. The air on cruise ships is recycle air through the air-conditioning systems. This could explain why so many people on cruise ships are being affected with this horrible illness.
It is said that air filters on cruise ships are not good enough to filter out the particles of the virus. Keep in mind, though, that scientists do not know the size of the virus yet – so this is just a theory.
But it does bring up a thought that the filters in your home should be high quality filters. The more high quality they are, the more particles it can intercept before it goes into the air you breathe in your household. We are not saying that a particular filter will catch the corona virus, as again, we do not know the size of the virus. But there are some filters out there that are known to catch other bacteria and germs. This is something we can help you figure out! At the time of your next routine maintenance, ask your technician to give you a brief rundown of your filter options.
