Viruses and bacteria can survive on surfaces for many hours and spread particularly fast in warm and moist conditions. Congested indoor environments are where surfaces tranmissions are most lilkley to occur.
Droplet transmission occurs within droplet nuclei, which are >5μm. These droplets spread from person to person, though coughing or sneezing.
Airborne transmission occurs within droplet nuclei, which are <5μm. These particles can remain in the air for long periods of time and over distances greater than 1 metre.
Bacterial infections can have various symptoms such as sore muscles and fatigue. Bacterial infections are also responsible for outbreaks such as Whooping Cough and Diphtheria resulting from harmful bacteria exposure. Symptoms of a bacterial infection appear as fever, headaches, and coughing.
The only way to treat a severe bacterial infection is through antibiotics. Over time your body will develop an immunity to these medications, and their effectiveness diminishes. For this reason, prevention is often better than treatment. Protect yourself and other by wearing a face mask with filter.
There are several ways to prevent illness caused by germs to stop the spread, but some are more effective than others. Wearing a face mask with a filter is perhaps one of the most effective ways to stop the infiltration of airborne infection. Handwashing, social distancing, and sanitising are all part of an effective prevention strategy.
Cloth masks offers little to no protection while a face mask with a filter can limit the spread of airborne viruses. Our AirWeave Copper filters have additional antimicrobial properties that can kill >99% of bacteria and reduce the risk of spread and contamination.
Superior protection from airborne viruses, decreasing the chance of catching common illnesses such as colds and fevers.
Exceptional protection from airborne bacteria, decreasing the chance of catching illnesses from an infected person via coughing, sneezing and close contact.
Protect yourself from particulate matter, all the way down to PM0.1, the smallest testable particle size.
