After 2020, it’s no surprise that people are becoming more and more concerned about the quality of the air in their homes and offices. As the COVID-19 epidemic swept the world, we were told to maintain distance and avoid crowded places with strangers. Although COVID exists in water droplets, these droplets are easily spread throughout the air, making it dangerous to be in close quarters with an infected person.
Many restaurants and other indoor businesses were shuttered because COVID spreads far more rapidly in enclosed spaces. COVID, however, is not the only airborne particle that we should worry about.
We don’t know what the future holds
The good news is that scientists and doctors have developed a vaccine for COVID-19. It will take some time before the majority of people are vaccinated and we reach herd immunity, but it is something to provide some hope for 2021.
Unfortunately, it seems that the future may bring deadlier viruses that are more difficult to contain. Doctor Jean-Jacques Muyembe-Tamfum of the Democratic Republic of the Congo warns that harder times could be ahead. Dr. Muyeme-Tamfum is a microbiologist who was part of the team that discovered Ebola in 1976.
He has decades of experience with infectious disease, and he believes that it is very possible that we will see something more serious than COVID-19 in our lifetimes. He attributes it to the changing ecology of Africa’s rainforests, which has been caused by the destruction that humans have done to them over the years.
Panic is not Necessary
Although the scientist’s projection is disconcerting, it doesn’t mean that we need to panic. Scientists, doctors, and civilians around the world have learned valuable lessons about slowing the community spread of infectious diseases, and hopefully we can carry these lessons into the future.
The speed with which a COVID-19 vaccine was developed is also encouraging. But there are still certain measures we can all take to ensure that our environments are clean and free from harmful particles that can cause disease and sickness.
Air Filtration is One Key Component
According to the EPA, air cleaners and HVAC filters are an important part of reducing the number of airborne contaminants in any indoor environment. This includes removing viruses and bacteria, as along as the cleaner is effective enough to remove particles that range in size from 0.1-1 um). Although filtration systems can’t offer 100% protection from COVID, they can provide an extra layer of protection for those who are practicing proper social distancing and keeping up with hygienic habits.
