The outbreak of the deadly coronavirus is steadily becoming a global health emergency with the World Health Organisation (WHO) calling for the whole world to be on ‘alert’ in the face of rising new cases. 

In light of the growing crisis, hospitals in Wuhan are using IQAir air filtration systems to help prevent and contain the spread of the deadly virus. This follows their successful efforts in 2003 where over 150 hospitals in Hong Kong were fitted with IQAir units to prevent the spread of SARS coronavirus.

Prior to the IQAir units being installed, The Hong Kong Hospital Authority rigorously tested a number of air cleaners to achieve the minimum requirement of 99.97% removal of particles as small as 0.3 microns. The IQAir air purifier was the only air cleaner to pass this test.

Each installation was tailored to the environment it was operating in thanks to the optional accessories that are available with the units. To protect the Health Care Workers (HCW), a negative pressure environment was created to contain the viruses from patients using the special IQAir ducting adaptor, OutFlow to combat the rising infected HCW’s.

The IQAir Cleanroom Series has been and remains the most suitable air cleaners for airborne infection control in sensitive environments. Each HyperHEPA filter is individually type-tested to achieve a minimum 99.5% efficiency while airborne physical microorganisms are removed with a 100% efficiency.

Below is an article on how IQAir is being used in China against the Coronavirus.
