Ultraviolet lamps have been introduced in recent months as the new tool to stop the spread of COVID-19, but can they do it?

In theory, what these lamps do is help disinfect surfaces. Instead, air purifiers are used to remove indoor contaminants such as allergens, mold, and dust. 

According to the Makati Medical Center, all products can help to some degree to combat the virus. However, doses and instruments should be applied properly. In the case of UV lights, they are a disinfection system that should be used only by professionals in spaces conditioned for it, since otherwise, it could have harmful consequences for health such as skin burns, or lesions in the eyes. 

According to professionals, lamps designed for domestic use lack scientific evidence to validate their use outside sanitary or industrial spaces. 

In contrast, air purifiers are supported by research that claims to be effective in disinfecting spaces. The important thing about this tool is to choose the one best suited to keep us healthy during this pandemic season. That is, select those with HEPA filters or high-efficiency particles, for its intelligent mechanism that helps to capture the smallest particles.

Another reason for choosing this air purification system is that purifiers have been used even before the current context, as they have been proven to help heal reactions caused by allergies and asthma.

Researchers say that silicone bracelets could provide quantitative indicators of air quality levels.

A study at the University of Texas A&M found evidence that when these devices are used with passive samplers, they can capture semi-volatile polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) of lower molecular weight, which is a pattern similar to that presented in active sampling. This means that such devices can identify a chemical that occurs naturally in compounds such as coal, oil, gas, wood, garbage, and tobacco. 

In this sense, pregnant women from Hidalgo County in South Texas were selected to collect the data. This area was chosen because it had the highest rate of prematurity (14.8%), compared to the rest of the state (12.9%). 

The objective of this research was to quantify maternal exposure to PAHs in pregnant women residing in McAllen. For this, they gave the participants backpacks with air sampling equipment. In addition, they placed a silicone bracelet on each of them. 

This showed that prenatal exposure to PAHs causes adverse effects on children’s health. In addition, it was found that the wristbands used detected contaminated air values similar to those identified in traditional collection methods. 

Given that prenatal exposure to PAHs is harmful to infants, finding tools like these that allow for easy and cost-effective detection is a valuable solution for measuring risks and taking effective action in time.

There are many options available when you want to lead a healthy life: exercise, eat healthily, go jogging. However, very few specialists recommend reducing exposure to contaminated gases as a measure to improve the quality of life. 

Talking about pollution involves reflecting on how human actions have deteriorated the ecosystem. This has consequently led to the emergence of multiple toxic substances in the form of gases, metals, or bacteria that affect human health. 

In this sense, studies indicate that the increase of fine particles in outdoor air correlates with a significant increase in heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pneumonia, and other serious diseases. 

We are all vulnerable to this situation, that is why from Airodoctor we want to share with you these measures published in an article from Harvard University:

✅ Use the Air Quality Index (AQI) as a guide to help you. EPA developed AQI to measure air quality. You can keep track of where you live in AirNow. When AQI is in unhealthy areas, try to avoid outdoor activities, especially near traffic-congested areas.

✅ Use safe transport alternatives: avoid traveling by public transport. And when driving, don’t idle your car, which is estimated to waste three billion gallons of fuel and generate 30 million tons of the major greenhouse gas carbon dioxide per year in the US.

✅ Avoid using kitchens with a gas system: Induction cooktops not only avert indoor pollution but also use the least amount of energy.

✅ Promote 100% renewable energy: helping to create a sustainable life is everyone’s job.

Although many countries were already beginning to implement advances such as the easing of biosafety measures, vaccines, recovery of social spaces, and research, with the new Delta variant we are all returning to the starting point.

Currently, thousands of companies are forced to retake biosecurity measures to protect the health of their employees. However, there is one particular measure that is not as favorable as previously thought. 

Plexiglas screens, designed to protect people in public spaces, have become a rising trend. Their purpose is to create a barrier between clients and workers, as well as they can be used to protect children in the classroom. 

In this sense, some professionals argue that this tool is not as effective as it seems and that it could even cause very dangerous scenarios. Although its barrier can protect from particles that are expelled by talking, coughing, or sneezing, it is useless to prevent the spread of aerosols that are stuck in the air that we all breathe.

More and more studies are validating this theory, arguing that for example, if this tool is used in a classroom, it could interfere with the proper ventilation of the room. Others, for their part, explain that it was an easy way out in the early stages of the pandemic when the behavior of the virus was not yet fully understood. 

Currently, air purification continues to be one of the most effective measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure that clean air circulates in all spaces. Instead of putting a barrier between your work team, consider including AiroDoctor as a partner wherever you go.
