The COVID-19 crisis is causing us all a lot of anxiety and concern about our health. Many of us are fortunate to be able to work from home and reduce the risk of contagion, but even so, each and every one of us has to do our part to stop the spread of the Coronavirus and take precautions to keep everyone safe.
The American channel Bloomberg presented a new study carried out in China where it reported that high concentrations of the virus were found in crowded or heavily trafficked spaces that were poorly ventilated.
According to the American Lung Association , bacteria and viruses can travel through the air, increasing the spread. Every time someone with the virus coughs or sneezes, tiny droplets of mucus circulate through the air. And these tiny droplets have been shown to thrive in stagnant air and poorly ventilated spaces. In fact, the more stagnant the air is in a room, the more likely the disease is to infect others.
Measures to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus:
- Maintain good personal hygiene
- Regularly disinfect the whole house
- Wear masks and gloves
- Comply with the safety distance
- Wash hands frequently
These are basic measures to avoid COVID-19 infection, but there are more options to help fight the virus.
Research has shown that ventilation helps prevent viruses and bacteria from spreading inside spaces. Now that the de-escalation is about to begin, it is important to avoid poorly ventilated and crowded places to avoid getting infected, but, in addition, it is also important to maintain good ventilation in our home.
To keep your home infection-free, make sure to regularly clean all surfaces in the house, emphasizing the hall and bathrooms, and keep rooms well ventilated. One of the easiest and most effective ways to circulate the air in your home is with a modern ceiling fan.
Ceiling fans circulate air which prevents stagnant air from accumulating and possible contagion. Just as studies have shown that stagnant air in a room can increase the spread of viruses, too much humidity has also been shown to spread disease. The ceiling fans design will allow you to maintain clean air in your home and reduce humidity.
Luckily, we are approaching summer and the ventilation of the house can limit humidity and the spread of the virus.
At Modern Fan we are experts in modern ceiling fans, all our models will help you fight the virus and also offer you the best feeling of comfort.
