Are air purification products effective in killing viruses?

The COVID-19 is still spreading globally,In the special period when respiratory safety is concerned, we are paying more and more attention to air purifiers, especially air purification products that can remove viruses. According to relevant experiments, air purification is effective in reducing virus threats. So, which air purifier is effective for virus removal?

The reason why it is difficult to remove the virus is that its size is extremely small, only 0.1μm in size, which is one-thousandth of the size of bacteria. Moreover, viruses are a non-cellular life form, and many methods to remove bacteria are completely ineffective for viruses.

At present, there are generally two modes for killing viruses in air purification on the market. One is the ozone mode. The higher the ozone content, the better the virus removal effect. However, excessive ozone will also affect the human respiratory system and nerve system, immune system, skin damage. If you stay in an environment with too much ozone for a long time, there are potential carcinogenic risks and so on. Therefore, this type of air purifier runs in sterilization and disinfection mode, and people cannot be present.

Spectrogram, UVC/UVB, UVA ultraviolet band

The other is the ultraviolet mode, the ultraviolet light with a wavelength of 200-290nm can penetrate the outer shell of the virus, cause damage to the internal DNA or RNA, and make it lose the ability to reproduce, to achieve the effect of killing the virus. This type of air purifier can have ultraviolet rays built into the machine to prevent ultraviolet rays from leaking, and people can be present during operation.
