As the seasons change and a brisk chill fills the air, the annual dance with cold and flu viruses begins anew. In this delicate ballet of health, it becomes imperative to arm ourselves against the invisible adversaries that lurk in the very air we breathe. Join us on an exploration through the corridors of airborne viruses as we delve into some of the many airborne illnesses to watch out for this cold and flu season, and discover how AirTamer functions as your bodyguard in the fight for well-being.

Influenza (Flu): The Stealthy Invader

Influenza (Flu): The Stealthy Invader

As synonymous with winter as snowflakes and cozy scarves, influenza is a formidable opponent. Its ever-mutating strains present an annual challenge for immune systems worldwide, emphasizing the importance of proactive measures to guard against its airborne transmission.

One of the most infamous chapters in the history of influenza is the Spanish flu of 1918. Contrary to its name, the Spanish flu did not originate in Spain. The exact origin remains a subject of debate, with some theories suggesting it may have started in the United States or China. What is clear, however, is the devastating global impact it had. The Spanish flu infected about one-third of the world’s population and claimed the lives of an estimated 50 million people.

AirTamer emits millions of negative ions every second from the little black brush at the top of AirTamer. These negative ions attach themselves to particles in the air like viruses, allergens, pollution, etc. and negatively charge those particles. Those negatively charged particles will then be naturally attracted to positively charged surfaces around you rather than continuing their way toward your breathing passage where they can make you sick.

Common Cold: The Persistent Foe  

Often dismissed as a minor inconvenience, the common cold can be surprisingly resilient. It is notorious for its adaptability, with hundreds of virus strains constantly evolving. This adaptability can make it challenging for the immune system to mount a swift and effective defense. Additionally, the cold viruses often mutate, making it possible to catch a cold multiple times throughout the year. When airborne, these viruses can survive on surfaces for hours, waiting for an unsuspecting host.

AirTamer acts as a silent sentinel, utilizing electrostatic purification to capture and neutralize airborne particles, including those responsible for the common cold. The common cold may seem benign, but its ability to thrive in various environments poses a year-round challenge.

Common Cold: The Persistent Foe 

Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV): A Concern for All Ages

While often associated with young children, Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) can affect individuals of all ages, especially during the cold and flu season. RSV is a highly contagious virus that primarily targets the respiratory tract, causing symptoms ranging from mild cold-like symptoms to severe lower respiratory tract infections, particularly in infants and older adults. Spread through respiratory droplets, RSV poses a significant threat in both indoor and outdoor environments, making it crucial to take proactive measures to reduce the risk of exposure.

Beyond its association with severe infections in infants, RSV can impact adults, especially those with weakened immune systems or underlying respiratory conditions. As an airborne virus, RSV is resilient, capable of surviving on surfaces and lingering in the air, making crowded places potential breeding grounds for transmission.

RSV, with its potential for severe respiratory infections, requires a proactive approach to prevention. AirTamer’s ability to create a personal zone of cleaner air ensures that you can navigate environments where RSV may be present, minimizing your risk of exposure and safeguarding your respiratory health.

Respiratory Syncytial Virus

Coronavirus: More than COVID-19

Finally, we have the coronavirus family, including the strain known as COVID-19. Coronaviruses can cause various respiratory illnesses, from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). COVID-19, in particular, has had a significant global impact, leading to a pandemic. It spreads through respiratory droplets and can also be transmitted by touching contaminated surfaces and then touching the face.

Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and loss of taste or smell. Preventive measures such as wearing masks, practicing social distancing, and frequently washing hands are vital in curbing the transmission of COVID-19. AirTamer has been tested in internationally recognized laboratories and has been shown to reduce 99% of viruses in twenty minutes, making AirTamer an excellent tool to combat COVID-19.

By understanding the characteristics of these highly contagious airborne viruses, we can better comprehend the importance of adopting best practices to safeguard ourselves and our loved ones.,
