World First Live Study Proves: MAXVAC® Medi® Air Purifier Effectively Removes Covid-19 Aerosols.

The renowned Cambridge University research hospital of Addenbrookes, published on September 22nd, 2021, its latest findings on the use of the  MAXVAC® Medi® air purifier. Those results definitively prove that the Medi® removes Covid and other microbial bioaerosols from the environment where they are in use.

An air filtration machine placed on a Covid-19 hospital ward removed almost all traces of the SARS-CoV2 coronavirus, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Cambridge in the U.K.

“Reducing airborne transmission of the coronavirus is extremely important for the safety of both patients and staff,” said Vilas Navapurkar, MD, a Consultant in Intensive Care Medicine at Cambridge University Hospitals and leader of the study. “Effective personal protective equipment has made a huge difference, but anything we can do to reduce the risk further is important,” Navapurkar added.

Research at a hospital swamped by people with COVID-19 has confirmed that portable air filters effectively remove SARS-CoV-2 particles from the air — the first such evidence in a real-world setting

The results suggest that air filters could be used to reduce the risk of patients and medical staff contracting SARS-CoV-2 in hospitals, the study’s authors say.

A team of doctors and scientists have found that a standard, off-the-shelf air filter was able to remove most airborne virus particles such as coronavirus on an intensive care ward.

There is evidence that Covid-19 can be spread by particles in the air, and tests were carried out at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge after a consultant wondered if the effect of air filtration could be measured.

School Week

Last autumn, staff and pupils were told to layer up as schools struggled to keep classrooms both ventilated for covid safety and warm during plummeting temperatures. Heads told Schools Week last year that their heating costs could double.

Geoff Barton, ASCL general secretary, said government action on ventilation in schools “amounts to little more than recommending that windows are kept open, which is not sustainable in providing a comfortable learning environment in the depths of a British winter”.

“Almost every London school is in an area where air pollution levels exceed World Health Organization limits, City Hall analysis suggests.

Figures show 98% of schools are in areas with toxic air quality, compared with 24% outside the capital.

Rosamund Adoo-Kissi-Debrah whose nine-year-old daughter died from pollution said “it was like lessons had not been learned”.

Living in areas of high air pollution increases the risk of hospitalisation with Covid-19 a new study has found.

Imperial College London researchers also found evidence people living in polluted areas may have an increased risk of catching the disease.

The review is the most “comprehensive overview” of studies on air pollution and coronavirus, researchers said.

Sadiq Khan said: “We cannot turn a blind eye to the clear evidence showing the dangers of toxic air pollution.” ‘

More than a quarter of all UK schools are in areas that are above the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) air pollution limits.

That is the conclusion of a new study from charity EarthSense, which has revealed that more than 3.4 million children across England, Scotland and Wales are learning in a polluted environment.

The research included 300 office workers in six countries including the UK, in fields such as engineering, property investment, architecture and technology. It found that higher concentrations of fine particulate matter in the air and lower ventilation rates were associated with slower response times and reduced accuracy in cognitive tests.
