Air purifiers to prevent airborne viruses & diseases in childcare centres

Children are at a higher risk of contracting airborne viruses and diseases such as colds, flu, COVID-19, chickenpox, measles, and hand, foot, and mouth, especially in environments where they are in close contact with one another.

Childcare centres are particularly susceptible to the spread of viruses due to the proximity of children and staff

While every precaution can be taken through cleaning and hygiene practices, a medical-grade HEPA air purifier can effectively filter viruses from the air – making them a must-have for every childcare centre.
