Throughout history, infectious diseases have had a difficult and devastating impact on humans. Infectious diseases causes one in every four deaths worldwide. New and old infectious disease emerge and efforts to contain it can sometimes be difficult. Infectious disease is any type of bacteria, virus, or organism that if ingested, inhaled or physical contact can cause harm. One of the leading infectious disease that has affected thousands is ebola. Ebola is one of the most deadly infectious diseases, causing death in approximately 50-90 percent of those who become infected. It is much higher than almost every other infectious disease.
The Centers of Disease and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration shares information on ebola. You may visit our recent blog post where we talk about how to prevent the spread of infectious disease. One of the most important process of preventing the spread of infectious disease is the clean up process. The Indoor Air Quality Association shares information on environmental clean up including information on cleaning up ebola virus contamination. Infection control precautions are very important to those who plan on working with ebola and other infectious diseases.
In any healthcare environment, maintaining indoor air quality is integral in preventing the spread of airborne disease, especially in critical areas of hospitals, in which patients are immunocompromised. Airtek provides indoor air quality management, preventative maintenance solutions, and portable containment products for airborne particulates, infection control, and bio-security.
