AllerAir has been supporting many Hospitals and Medical Clinics with Air Purifiers to help control and reduce the spread of COVID-19 virus which is the Coronavirus Disease 2019. AllerAir Air Purifiers with Germicidal UV was chosen, because of the Air Cleaners being on the High-End of Air Purifiers on the market that are effective to clean the air of viruses, bacteria, particles, microorganisms, chemicals, and odors.
AllerAir Air Purifiers used for Viruses & Bacteria feature Super HEPA filters, which unlike Traditional HEPA can filter microorganisms at 0.125 Micron. The Air Cleaners were also equipped with Germicidal UV, which kills Viruses and Bacteria that is airborne.
In a Medical environment where an Aerosol-generating procedure is done, the droplets become Aerosolized particles, where the droplets become like a very fine mist and are in the air for a longer period of time.
AllerAir Air Purifiers have not been tested for the removal of the new Coronavirus yet, as it is a new strain that was discovered in 2019.
All AllerAir Air Purifiers can be used in home, office, commercial, and Medical environments.
AllerAir Air Purifiers are made of a all metal housing, which can be easily disinfected. Air Purifiers made of plastic can't be easily disinfected.

At the moment there is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The best way to stay safe is to follow the recommendations from the CDC
In order to properly filter airborne viruses and or Bacteria such as the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), An Air Purifier would need to filter smaller micron particles / microorganisms from the air.
The size of the Coronavirus is 0.125 micron in size. Only An Air Purifier with Super HEPA can filter 0.125 micron.
Note: Air Purifiers with Traditional HEPA filter can only filter down to .3 Micron.
AllerAir uses a Germicial UV Bulb, which is effective at killing airborne Viruses and Bacteria. The UV-C Light also neutralizes mold spores, which damages the DNA.
An Air Purifier equipped with the UV bulb is effective at killing many airborne Germs, Viruses, and bacteria. Certain pathogens would require more time to eradicate, which the AirMedic Series Air Purifiers are designed for.
