EFFECTIVENESS OF CUCKOO’S AIR PURIFIERS AGAINST COVID-19
(Tested during the support given at the COVID-19 Quarantine & Treatment Centre in MAEPS Serdang [PKRC MAEPS])
“In Pusat Kuarantin dan Rawatan COVID-19 MAEPS, positive COVID-19 patients were being treated in a makeshift hospital setup using the Exhibition Hall A and C. Both the Halls are using a mechanical ventilation system in which about 30% of the air are being extracted out while 70% of the air are being recirculated. Although the risk of the transmission via air is low in a droplet transmission disease like COVID-19, the risk of droplets virus transmission is there especially when the Halls were full with positive COVID-19 patients. The risk of contracting COVID-19 within Hall A and C through a disseminated droplets of COVID-19 patients was there, in view of the close ventilation system used in both Hall A and C.
To overcome this issue, the management of this centre has decided the use of air purifier with HEPA filter or HEPA filter equivalent specification is necessary. In order to reduce the risk of COVID-19 viral transmission within the staff working area, CUCKOO Air Purifier with the Ultra PM2.5 filter, was used within the Yellow Zone of the COVID-19 treatment centre. Due to the high risk, all staff working in this centre have had their swabs taken for a RT PCR test every 2 weeks. None of the staffs were infected despite wearing only the surgical masks in the yellow zone. There is definitely a role of air purifiers as part of the risk reduction measures. Thank you CUCKOO for sponsoring us with all the air purifiers and water filters.”
