The coronavirus has been making headlines all over the world. As of right now, there is no cure for it and it is highly contagious. In this blog post, we are going to discuss the effectiveness of ventilation systems in combating the spread of the virus. Many experts agree that installing a good ventilation system can help reduce the risk of exposure to the virus. A good ventilation system can help to circulate fresh air and get rid of any contaminants in the air. It is important to have a system that can filter out particles as small as 0.001 microns, which is what the coronavirus is believed to be made up of.
