People need 10,000 litres of clean air a day.

The recommended daily fluid intake is 2 litres for women and 2.5 litres for men. This quantity includes drinking water, drinks of all kinds and the moisture available from the food we eat.

We automatically demand clean surfaces and clean water, but what about the air we breathe?

Clean air is a crucial part of protecting you, your colleagues, customers, finances and family. Vaccines are a crucial part of the effort to control Covid but they are not a golden bullet. Covid will continue to evolve. 

Recent studies have shown that Covid is spread during face to face conversations. Prof Pedro Magalhães de Oliveira, an expert in fluid mechanics at the Cambridge University and colleagues reported how they built models that take into account the size of droplets emitted from infected individuals when they speak or cough, as well as factors including the makeup of the droplets and the time it takes for them to settle. The team concluded an infected person poses an infection risk by coughing or talking ….. an hour after an infected person has spoken for 30 seconds the total aerosol left contains much more viral mass than after one cough – in small spaces and without ventilation this can be enough to cause Covid.

It is also reported that people who have been vaccinated against Covid 19 can still infect others.  Prof Jonathan Van-Tam, England’s deputy chief medical officer, wrote “no vaccine has ever been” 100% effective….It is possible to contract the virus in the two to three-week period after receiving a jab…..Even after you have had both doses of the vaccine you may still give Covid-19 to someone else and the chains of transmission will then continue.” 

Clean air is crucial to stop the spread of Covid but it is also crucial to control other harmful and life threatening; bacteria, viruses, acarids, parasites, micro-organisms, infectious mould and many more, including those resistant to antibiotics.

At the end of 2020, approximately 9.9 million jobs, from 1.2 million different employers were furloughed in the United Kingdom. The UK government is spending £73 billion for measures to support jobs such as the furlough scheme, plus a further £66billion on grants and loans to support businesses, a total of £139 billion. The government will also raise £100bn less tax than it hoped because of the crisis. Unemployment in the UK has risen by 1% since February 2019, the beginning of the Covid pandemic. It now stand at 5% – 1.7 million people.

Clean air should be an integral part of controlling Covid but it is also crucial to controlling other threat to health. ViroClearTech solutions are effective against, Covid, SARS, NORO, MRSA, Bird Flu, Legionella and many more, including those resistant to antibiotics. Solutions isolate and eliminate 99.99% of airborne Covid.

Between 2014 and 2018 deaths attributed to the ’flu have varied between 11,875 and 28,330 per winter season. An estimated 8 million working days are lost to flu annually at a cost of £1.5 billion.

We all know the enormous pressure which has been placed on the NHS and all front line services and workers, the huge personal risks they have taken to help the rest of us. Clean air matters in other areas; businesses have been forced to shut because of lockdown, mental illness has increased and all services have come under pressure. Prince Charles has said that he feels cancer has become the forgotten C.

Clean air has to be a planned part of our future living and working environment, to protect the vulnerable and to allow us to live and work in the way we chose.

Clean air will give you back control of your environment. People need 10,000 litres of clean air a day, let’s get to work on it.
