H5N1 Avian Flu/Bird Flu, SARS - Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome and the Bubble Bunker
Filtering H5N1, H5N2 Avian Flu/Bird Flu and SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) virus from the hospital and work environment:.
At this writing, very little is known about H5N1 Avian Flu and SARS. From what has been published by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and by the World Health Organization, this virus is believed to be highly contagious, is apparently capable of living for several hours or days outside of the body on such items as door handles and is believed to be transmitted from one person to another by sneezing. Some say that the incubation period SARS is between 10 and 12 days and the incubation period for H5N1 Avian Flu is estimated to be 7 days. It is too early to say if the Bubble Bunker, particularly the negative pressure hospital bed version, is capable of isolating the infected patient from the rest of the patient population. Our HEPA filtration systems are capable of filtering out particles and bacteria as little as .5 microns in size, however some published reports have stated that the SARS virus is less than .1 microns long. Our system can filter approximately 98.5% of all particles of .1 micron - but not 100%. Nevertheless, it is believed that the virus is normally contained in droplets far exceeding the current .5 micron size of our filtration system, which may indeed be a fist step defense against this possible pandemic. We are presently working on several hospital security systems which not only filter the air but also sterilizes it, at the same time. Please contact us for you specific hospital, medical. military or corporate needs.
Is SARS spread by cockroaches? The cockroach theory was suggested by Hong Kong Deputy Director of Health Leung Pak-yin on April 7, 2003 in trying to understand how come in just a few days, over 300 people were infected at the Amoy Gardens apartment complex in Kowloon district, near Hong Kong. Many of the people in the complex did not have direct contact with other known to be infected people. Though this suggestion is as good as any, it shows the general lack of knowledge in this ailment. tre
Primary Causes of Death from Disease
Estimates from the World Health Organization, and other believed to be reliable sources.
HEPA filters, which were originally developed by the Atomic Energy Commission in 1943, filter particles as small as .3 microns and are 97.97% efficient. Anthrax spores are larger than .5 microns.
Viruses are not filtered by HEPA filters, since viruses are much smaller than what is possible to filter. It should be noted that a HEPA filter does not kill the organism, but rather, it traps the organism within the filter. It is possible for the organism to break free at some future time. For this reason, it is important for the user to wear protective clothing and/or gloves when changing filters.
Immediately after the collapse, the entire city was blanketed with dust fallout that ranged in thickness from a thin film, to several inches thick. This dust was later determined to be a low grade health hazard containing a variety of materials including asbestos. Above photographs taken September 11, 2001 about 30 minutes after WTC1 went down. Shot in front of City Hall, 3 blocks from ground zero.
