This year’s flu season is now in full swing and hitting earlier and stronger than anytime in the past decade, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). “ Reports of Influenza-like-illness (ILI), are nearing what have been peak levels during moderately severe seasons, According to Dr. Joe Bresee, Chief of Epidemiology and Prevention Branch in CDC’s Influenza Division. “While influenza vaccination offers the best protection we have against influenza, it’s still possible that some people may become ill despite being vaccinated.”
People who are most susceptible to flu complications include young children, people sixty-five and older, pregnant women and those with underlying medical conditions. While everyone should take extra precautions this time of year, these groups are urged to take simple, additional steps to remove or kill contaminated air before they breathe it in. Flu viruses can be transmitted from coughs and sneezes up to 6 feet away, and the average person breathes 3600 gallons of air per day, so indoor air quality is essential.

UV Flu Technology has developed a residential, air purifiers that utilize this this hospital-grade method.
