Doctors have established that coronaviruses do spread from person to person through the air. The air we breathe in public spaces is a big challenge and needs careful and quick attention. For this reason, in quarantine areas with potentially infected people, great precautions are taken regarding airborne contamination. On a more everyday level, we should ALSO care about air quality in our daily lives. It has been widely shown that virus infections do spread in ways that can ONLY be attributed to airborne sources.
Drilling down, respiratory viruses replicate in the respiratory tract from where they are subsequently shed and are transmitted via respiratory secretions. It has been shown that simple breathing can discharge aerosols (tiny droplets) of saliva and mucus that can harbor viable viruses and pose a real risk of infection transfer.
To mitigate airborne-infection transfer and protect healthy people, effective air cleaning is required. Relying on air conditioning filters is not adequate and may even pose a greater risk. Using high-flow HEPA filtering to direct and capture airborne aerosol droplets is a necessity, and it is a practical and verifiable precaution that should be taken for indoor public places, institutions, and facilities. It is very important to be aware that since saliva/mucus aerosols can remain indefinitely airborne, viruses can be transported for long distances. NOT having a high-volume HEPA air filtration system creates unnecessary risk. The air we breathe is public space. So those responsible for public spaces need to please take action quickly to protect us all!
Unfortunately, it gets worse. Since aerosols are very small, breathing in these small droplets transports the potentially deadly viruses DIRECTLY into your deep lung spaces. Airborne sources of infection are a worst-case scenario for us all. Viruses WANT to be in your lungs, it is as simple as that. Confirm this by asking your doctor WHICH location in the human body represents the highest risk for infection – the answer would be the lungs.
The American Lung Association says, “Bacteria and viruses can travel through the air, causing and worsening diseases. They get into the air easily. When someone sneezes or coughs, tiny water or mucous droplets filled with viruses or bacteria scatter in the air or end up in the hands where they spread on surfaces like doorknobs. Inhaling these viruses or bacteria can spread coughs, colds, influenza, tuberculosis, and other infectious agents.” Coronavirus manifests itself in your respiratory system, so reducing the possibility of spreading infection from person to person by using high-volume HEPA-filtered air is smart and protects everyone!
The company BlueSky-Global offers high volume, mobile HEPA filtration systems designed specifically for deployment to large public spaces. The BlueSky system was invented for highly hazardous filtration of airborne Asbestos, Hexavalent Chrome, nuclear-radiated dust etc. – so it is perfect for the even more critical application of removing airborne infectious mucus/saliva aerosols.
Finally, BlueSky has the unique feature that the HEPA filters are enclosed in a SmartBox, which means that the contaminated filters NEVER get opened and service personnel are NEVER exposed. Used SmartBox modules containing the huge contaminated/infected filters are simply transported and safely handled by medical waste companies.
So, speaking very personally, would you prefer shopping in a store that has implemented an airborne virus capture system to protect you from deep lung infection? When you go to an airport or a school, in Church or enjoying dinner at a restaurant, would the air quality not be of paramount importance? We need to act now because time is ticking and preparing for the near future is paramount.
The benefits of a BlueSky system for protecting you, your family, and those all around you as you go about your normal day could be a life saver. And know that by using BlueSky Technology anything that is captured IS NEVER going to be exposed again and will harm no one.
BlueSky is designed to clean the air you breathe from all airborne contaminants.
Is your health worth the investment?
Coronavirus spread “In terms of half-life, the research team found that it takes about 66 minutes for half the virus particles to lose function if they are in an aerosol droplet” reported Reuter’s on 22nd of March – research from NIAID’s Montana facility at Rocky Mountain Laboratories.” It means that if someone is standing in line to pay for groceries, in a pharmacy, sitting in a doctor’s waiting room, the air surrounding where they stood will contain aerosols, and when they leave, the next person will breathe in those aerosols. This is the reason infection spreads so quickly.
There are ONLY TWO solutions to the aerosol problem and the rapid spread
- Good ventilation and air filtration.
Amazingly, BlueSky offers a powerful, effective solution to public air cleaning, but the requests for further information regarding installation? Installations – ZERO. Buying masks work for large droplets, but aerosols need more air cleaning. Really quite straight forward. But the people responsible for the air we breathe in these public places are the ones who need to act, and they are not!
A BlueSKy machine costs the same as a small car. Don’t you think our health is worth it?
In a pandemic we need leaders
Not a single large corporation is stepping up as a leader. Showing the way. Taking the proactive step of introducing vertical air cleaning so that their patrons are safer. Large organizations leading the way makes commercial sense, makes social sense, and shows the world what proactivity looks like. Whole Foods, CVS, Costco, FedEx, government, FEMA, to name a few…where are you all?
Make indoor spaces safe for work – install BlueSky Defender
Air recirculating with HEPA filtration prevents the accumulation of airborne aerosols – it has now been widely reported that the virus remains alive in aerosols for several hours… so when someone is infected, the air they “leave behind” needs to be sucked down and out, filtered to remove aerosols, and the cleaned air can then be reintroduced to complete the airflow cycle. They do this in hospital operating rooms, aircraft, and cleanrooms – because it works – keeping public spaces clean and safer where people will go… Amazon, Whole Foods, lead the way to protect large spaces with vertical airflow and protect consumers… and your staff

BlueSky Defender is THE solution for long term mitigation of airborne transmissions
Lisa Brosseau, a retired professor of public health, believes the evidence is moving toward the conclusion that airborne transmission is “the primary and possibly most important mode of transmission for SARS-CoV-2.” These are not fear-mongering conclusions, they are reality. Downflow air ventilation and HEPA filtration with integrated UVC is the best answer to reducing aerosol infection risk in larger spaces. Don’t be fooled by room ventilation ductless “boxes”… while they may be readily available and installable in minutes, they don’t effectively capture widespread aerosols, but merely distribute and to some extent dilute them. In larger spaces, BlueSky Defender #HEPA filtering with integrated #UVC machines bring solutions.
