While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned Dec. 4 that the flu vaccine may not be as effective against the serious flu strains that are the most dominant this flu season, the new RxAir® UV air purification system by UV Flu Technologies (OTCBB: UVFT) destroys all types of flu viruses, effectively reducing exposure for everyone in the room, even unvaccinated individuals.
The RxAir Air Purifier’s patented kill chamber and scientifically chosen UV-C lights have been proven in independent EPA- and FDA-certified laboratory testing to destroy on first pass more than 99% of airborne flu viruses, and other harmful viruses and bacteria that cause the cold, MRSA (staph), strep (whooping cough), TB, measles, pneumonia and a myriad of other antibiotic-resistant and viral infections.
“Since this flu season’s vaccines may not be as effective against some of the deadlier strains, it is imperative to look at reducing airborne exposure, which is the flu virus’ primary mode of transmission,” emphasized Bryan Stone, Chief of Medicine, Desert Regional Medical Center. “Germicidal UV air purifiers are the best way to combat the airborne pathogens on a continuous basis. The RxAir UV light air purifiers force extended exposure of flu viruses to UV light, effectively inactivating them. We needed a new magic bullet this season and this one makes so much sense.”
“Before UV light air purification technology, hand washing and vaccines were the mainstay of defense,” Dr. Stone noted. “Now, a safe but effective defensive product can inactivate the viruses in the very air they use for transmission. Even better, RxAir can work around the clock, continually eliminating viruses as individuals emit them.”
Infected individuals, even if asymptomatic, emit viruses as they breathe, talk, cough and sneeze. Wherever there are people, it is likely that airborne viruses are present. Many of these viruses will remain airborne and active for days after the person leaves a room, ready to infect anyone inhaling them. Since each person takes 25,000 breaths per day, an RxAir air purification system is a necessary and effective tool to reduce flu exposure, especially for strains not matched to the vaccines and for individuals who may not follow other flu prevention practices.
