A leading authority on hospital airborne infection control has determined that American Green Technology’s Health Risk Management System (HRMS) will be highly effective in eliminating the MERS virus.
HRMS is a patented lighting product clinically proven to eliminate 99.7 percent of airborne pathogens which cause healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). It is designed to provide unobtrusive protection 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.
Dr. Wladyslaw Kowalski, one of the world's foremost authorities on hospital airborne infection control, reached his conclusions after completing a Genomic Analysis of the MERS virus. Additionally, he has evaluated the effectiveness of the HRMS in neutralizing MERS and in his study writes: "The HRMS will virtually sterilize the airstream of any airborne MERS virus."
In an interview with Dr. Kowalski following the release of his study he said that HRMS would be very effective against the MERS virus. His calculations indicate nearly a 100% removal rate of the MERS virus, which will be mostly due to UV disinfection and, to a lesser degree, removal by the integral MERV filter.
“In multiple passes, we could expect complete eradication in a relatively short amount of time," he said.
Both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the CDC recommend that healthcare facilities utilize airborne precautions, in addition to standard and contact precautions to deal with the possible spread of MERS, because of the similarity between the MERS Coronavirus and SARS Coronavirus, which is known to be transmitted through the air.
