Dr. Fauci has said that if you really want to avoid coronavirus, you need to have one of these devices in your home.
With the coronavirus pandemic continuing to rage on, many people don't feel safe leaving their homes, and for good reason as well. However, as multiple public health authorities have pointed out, much of the community transmission occurs in the home, which means that our homes aren't a complete safe haven. So, what can you do to protect your home? Dr. Anthony Fauci has a suggestion.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is the nation's leading infectious disease expert and has recently backed the purchasing of one product that can protect your home against COVID-19. That product is high-efficiency particulate air systems or HEPA filters. These air filters remove any COVID-19 particles from the air, thus making your living space much cleaner and COVID-19 free.
The infectious disease expert said to Maurine Knighton, "Good air flow and HEPA filters can work". For those that don't know, for a filter to be defined as a HEPA filter, US standards require the filter to be able to capture 99.97% of particles. According to Wirecutter, "The virus that causes COVID-19 is approximately 0.125 micron (125 nanometers) in diameter. It falls squarely within the particle-size range that HEPA filters capture with extraordinary efficiency: 0.01 micron (10 nanometers) and above."
Dr. Fauci also mentioned that these filters can be used for large-scale commercial spaces such as theaters, which may speed up the return back to normal life activities like going to the movies. For more information regarding this story, check out this link here.
