Like any airborne pathogen, the H1N1 virus is easily spread by contact from person to person in the air. While it is always a challenge to keep from getting into contact with a carrier there are options available for reducing or removing the virus in small, enclosed areas.
The ability to remove the virus in say, a classroom or hospital ward is now possible with the use of the new commercial, hospital grade HPS series portable HEPA filtration units by Pure Air Systems. These new high units (up to 500 cfm) can be placed anywhere in a room and provide from 3 to 10 air changes per hour. The new HPS units use a true, certified, scanned HEPA rated at 99.99% at 0.3 microns and smaller.
With the high incidence of H1N1 flu on college campuses and in the elementary schools, the use of HEPA filtration systems like the HPS series could help reduce the exposure of the flu to a number of students and individuals.
