Air Purifiers in Confined Spaces May Actually Increase the Spread of Airborne Viruses
News   Jan 27, 2021

The positions of air inlets and outlets in confined spaces, such as elevators, greatly affect airborne virus transmission. Researchers have shown that air purifiers may actually increase the spread. They use ultraviolet radiation to kill viruses and other microbes, but they also circulate air, sucking it in and exhausting cleaned air. This adds to overall circulation.
