The SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus is spreading around the world at high speed. Highly contagious due to airborne transmission, it has taken the best health systems by surprise and highlights the fundamental importance of good indoor air quality. Our air purifiers are the solution of choice in the fight against the pandemic, especially its spread in the hospital environment.
Covid-19 is a new and largely unknown virus. In the early days of the epidemic, WHO and epidemiologists claimed that this coronavirus was mainly transmitted by droplets that were sent into the air when a sick person coughed or sneezed, and that a distance of one metre was sufficient to protect against it.
Nevertheless, several studies seem to prove that Covid-19 can be spread through the air much more easily. “The virus can actually be transmitted when people are just talking,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Air purifiers: attack the coronavirus at the source!
The Ikibox air purifiers use a revolutionary technology and allow you to clean the indoor air in less than 10 minutes.
In particular, they are effective against the spread of coronaviruses: according to a 2012 IAQ (indoor air quality) study, our products reduce the risk of airborne contamination by 50 to 70%.
Furthermore, Ikibox devices do not use filters. This is an important advantage, since the use of filters can generate dangerous sources of secondary contamination during replacement, handling or wear and tear.
Free loans to hospitals and a retirement home
From the very beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, we realized that Ikibox air purifiers could be a powerful ally in the fight against this scourge that affects every country in the world and claims countless victims. We therefore assembled and sent all available units to several hospitals and a retirement home as a matter of urgency and lent them to them free of charge.
However, there are still millions of people who may be contaminated by the virus in the medical environment, the industrial sector, confined public spaces such as public transport… Our priority is therefore to make our air purification solutions as widely available as possible while continuing to support the most exposed professionals.
