The coronavirus pandemic has changed the way we approach our daily lives. A huge number of people are now working from home, nonessential shops are closed, and the education sector has embraced online classes. As a result, people are spending most of their time confined at homes. And as strange as it may sound, without enough air circulation, the air we breathe indoors can get 2-5 times more polluted than the outdoor air.
The coronavirus primarily spreads through droplets of cough or sneeze of an affected person or coming into contact with any contaminated surfaces. Therefore, the best possible option for fighting against the virus is to avoid contact with anyone infected or showing symptoms and practice proper hygiene. But what about the air you are breathing in; whether you are at home or in the hospital as a doctor or a patient?
As all the family members are indoors for an extended period, pollutant levels can rise to 100 times than outdoor air, which can cause breathing difficulty. According to WHO (World Health Organization), nearly 3.8 million people die each year from exposure to the smoke from cookstoves and fuels at home. In contrast, the other 4.2 million die as a result of outdoor air pollution. Poor air quality in households not only causes stress and anxiety but can also lead to heart diseases, strokes, and even cancer.
In almost every household, there are elderlies, children, pregnant women, people with allergies or respiratory issues, or someone who is recovering from a surgical procedure. The same goes for everyone in hospitals where different types of viruses and pollutants are present. In every scenario, breathable air is a necessity.
Keeping windows and doors open for a particular period can aid in air circulation but it also opens up the possibility of pollen, virus or bacteria to come inside. In this case, air-purifying units can be very helpful. Fans in air purifiers draw in air and pass through a filter and release the purified air. These units can effectively eliminate virus, pollen, as well as pet dander with the use of High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance (HEPA) filters and increase the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) with a 99.97% accuracy. Proper ventilation can also help to remove pollutants, control humidity, and prevent different viral infections from harming your family members or the health professionals and the coronavirus patients living in isolation.
In this dire situation, you can easily get a breath of fresh air by installing Blueair Air Purifier at your home. Singer Bangladesh has brought a collection of the world's leading Swedish made air purification solutions for home and professional use. These purifiers use smokestop filters with activated carbons which effectively remove tobacco smoke, traffic pollution fumes, and odours.
The collection of purifiers also comes with its own patented HEPASilent filter that removes different allergens, pollens, mold spores, and dust. Even if someone at your household is suffering from coronavirus, air purifier of such caliber in their quarantine room can certainly help to protect other family members from the virus. The same goes for any healthcare professionals who are self-isolating themselves.
As researchers are yet to find a possible cure for this virus, the mass people need to be vigilant and cautious. While most of the people are spending their time indoors, it is necessary to keep healthy. And to facilitate people's wellbeing, Singer products are available for online purchase to ease your social distancing. Currently, the BlueAir Airpurifier is available in 13 models in the market within the price range of Tk3,990 to Tk64,990.
