Why Indoor Air Quality Matters
COVID-19, or the coronavirus, has drastically changed our routines. Due to the lockdowns put in place in affected regions around the world, people are spending more time indoors than ever. And that’s a big point of concern when talking about air quality because indoor air is usually two to five times worse than outdoor air.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic began, people were already spending a lot of time indoors, which has been intensified by efforts to combat or slow the spread of the disease. For many people, they are unaware that the air they are breathing indoors is often more polluted than outside air. This can induce anxiety as our homes are supposed to be the place where we feel the safest.
“We can then utilize air quality data within our homes and workplaces to create an environment that helps to deactivate viruses and to enhance our immune system.”
Research has shown that air quality and COVID-19, together with other viruses, are correlated. We can then utilize air quality data within our homes and workplaces to create an environment that helps to deactivate viruses and to enhance our immune system.
