Solutions to live with Covid-19 via tweaks to our furnitures -specifically the Omicron Variant
We have been fighting covid-19 for two years now and we have come to the conclusion that getting covid-19 is like getting the flu and thus we have to live with it. We are now aware that even if we are to be fully vaccinated, there is a possibility that we can be infected again – we have to find a way and make changes to the way we live our lives. We have to find a better solution to avert covid-19 infection especially of the delta variant. There is logic in us suspecting that it is because of the air that we breathe in – mainly caused by the saturation of pathogens in a confined place that we often find ourselves in. So the way to go forward is to manage the air as best as we can – it would be logical to extract away the polluted air through a vacuuming device. As the infected air is breathe out from the person, it should be immediately taken away to put it in a device which will then be filtered and sanitized before it is exhausted out or in some circumstances, recirculated back into the system. Here are some examples of how polluted air is extracted out of the spaces so that we can live with the virus.
What are they? What is their purpose?
As we are entering the endemic era of coronavirus, we will need to make many changes to how we live. Top of the agenda is how do we change things - things that we are in touch with. Of course we are aware that we have to be very careful when we touch something - so we have touchless technologies to help us from unwittingly in contact with the virus and to spread it. Then there are the things that we live with - our room space and the furnitures and fittings that we have to use. And we look around at the air that surrounds us. Then we visualize that we will have to make changes to our furnitures in our house and offices - there is a real need to reconfigure our furnitures because there is this pathogen called Covid-19 which they found lingers on in the air for some time after we have expelled them from our lungs. We therefore find it fit to redesign the furnitures to fit the time of the endemic.
This is how virus get spread especially in restuarant and office environments - exhaled air spread accross the board.
Looking at this diagram then, what can you do to prevent the exhaled air from spreading? This is even more critical when you have an enclosed space like that of a restaurant where there is very little of air ventilation!
See how easily it is to spread covid-19 or any other disease for that matter - all it takes is a side wall mounting of the air conditioner (or heater). Do you want to have this set up in your room, your office or a public place (like in a train)? Looking at this diagram will shock us into action by way of changing how we have the air circulating in our room - it is no rocket science, just logical thinking. In short, air should be drafted from the top to the bottom and not from side to side and also air should be extracted out of the system instead of having it recirculated all over the room which unintentionally help the spread of disease. A safer solution is to have vented air or air (conditioned) blowing from top to bottom as shown in the diagram below
Inducted air flowing from top to bottom
New Anti-Covid Furniture to fight Coronavirus
An Anti Covid Furniture in the form of a table attachment is our solution to prevent the spread of Covid 19. It forms a part of the system of directing air from the top to the bottom ; as a better way to prevent the spread of pathogen amongst the occupants of a room. This is because health experts had determined that the Corona Virus is partly spread through fine particles (aerosols) that we inherently exhaled from our mouth and nose. It was also found that these fine particles can remain airborne and floating for a couple of minutes whilst waiting for it to be inhaled into our lungs with us sitting next to the infected person! So its all about the air, the floating air particles in particular and we will have to deal with it perhaps for a long period; it is most likely that the Covid 19 will become an epidemic. When we talk about the air, we will have to touch on the ventilation issue. Conventional thinking is that fresh air is vented into the space from one side of the wall and is then forced to flow to the other side of the wall - from left to right and vice versal. Now if we were to take a case of two people sitting opposite each other - then we will find that depending on which way the air were to flow, it would be possible for the other guy sitting in the headwind position to catch the virus. It would then be obvious that the air is travelling in the wrong direction as far as the spread of virus is concerned. In order to correct the situation, air should be made to flow from the top and then to the bottom where it is extracted to be channelled to a filtration chamber. The filtered air will then be either recirculated or better exhausted to the outside (preferably filtered and sanitized). The preferred embodiment is shown in the diagram below
First of its kind - a technique to exhaust exhaled (expelled from the mouth and nose) air from a dinner sitting at a dining table. This embodiment shows a peripheral attachment with an internal hollow is attached to the table top edge. An internal channel connects the edge facing the occupant and the vacuum device. Air that is being exhaled from the occupant is then being judiciously sucked in and thence channelled to the vacuum where it would be led to be filtered and sanitized. The filtered air can then be recirculated or better still outlet to the outside. If the air were to be exhausted to the outside, then it would be best to have a proper piping system either laid above the floor or having it laid under the floor – sort of underground channel.
Since the peripheral attachment is designed for the restaurant and office environment as a quick retrofitting solution to better manage the air in an Anti Covid exercise, it could however be better to have it integrated into the whole air conditioning and ventilation system when designed from the start. As you would have noticed from the diagram shown below, you will see that there is an air conditioned air coming out from the central piece of the table. Indeed we can have an integrated air cooler such that it will take the place of a centralised air conditioner as it would be more fuel saving as it would have to only cool the air that is surrounding the occupant – you will not have to spend fuel cooling the ceiling area or the spaces that are far away from the occupant. The diagram also shows of an umbrella like canopy to divert cooled air down to the occupant – this canopy can also be adjusted up or down to suit the preference of the occupants.
In order to reduce our energy cost whilst fighting the spread of coronavirus, we will need to redesign our air ventilation system.
Let us look at our air ventilation system which we have been using for decades. It was a design to suit the air conditioning technology of the time – there was very little need for air ventilation at the time. It was of course understandable because having air ventilation will mean energy lost and thus higher fuel bill! But we are now confronted with a dangerous disease – one that spread fast. The experts including the people at CDC have raised the need to include ventilated air into our system so that we have some fresh air to breathe in. A circulating air can help disperse off the virus which was found to be able to spread through the air. We are proposing that an underfloor hollow be built into our room space – this hollow or channel will assist us to exhaust out the air from the room. There should be another inlet for fresh air to vent in and it is conveniently placed at the top corner of the room. With such a system will mean we have another problem – that of energy leakage. So we will need to be able to tweak the air conditioning system and we are suggesting that we use an intelligent air conditioning system – that is able to sense the number of occupant and thus tweak its powering capability to suit the environmental conditions.
An underfloor channel will serve three purposes – first to exhaust out the stale air and second is to integrate a cooling (or heating) system with a purposely built centralised air conditioning system. If we are talking about an effective ventilation system we must ensure that sufficient fresh air gets into the room – also sufficient foul air getting out. The so called underfloor channel can be conveniently hidden from sight by way of a covering layer – it could be made from flooring material. It could also be built in like the heating chamber of a heated room space but whatever form it takes it would be best to build it from the beginning stage. And thirdly, the underfloor channel can serve as a conduit of electricity - you can have wireless charging on the floor. So these are the ideas that the HVAC engineers have to consider when they are doing a reengineering exercise – for the purpose of riding off the ever increasing forms of virulent pathogens.
This table air conditioning system will save you 60% of your fuel bill - it also incorporates an anti covid air exhaustion system!
You might wonder what is table air conditioner?
Table air conditioner is a table with an inbuilt air conditioner - it could either be a compressed refigerant type or an electronic air cooler (or warmer). It is of course new and never seen before. Table Air Conditioner is especially design to keep you cool and at the same time extract out the air that you expelled from your mouth and nose so that others don't breath in what you breath out while sitting at the dining table. The air conditioner (evaporator) is built into the table stand which inherently is of a bigger size than standard. Air is usually being drawn into the evaporator chamber through a vent at the bottom of the stand. But in this case it is being drawn from the discharge vent of the vacuum/filter/sanitizer combo. The discharge from the vacuum is being sanitized to get rid of virus so it is the cheapest option to use it for cooling (or heating). However having such a system will require the heated refrigerant to be bleeded out of the room like that of a split air conditioner. It is the same with an electronic type air cooler otherwise the room temperature will remain the same or worse still, slightly warmer. In this case, it would be better to bleed out the warm fluid to the outside through an inbuilt underfloor channel. If however an underfloor channel is not available, then a piping system will have to be used - it would then not look aesthetic! You will also notice that there is a sort of cup shaped deflector hanging at the top of the table - this is to help deflect the cooled air to the occupant instead of to the ceiling. Alternatively the cup shaped deflector is connected to the table via a lamp shade stand - and made adjustable like in the diagram shown below.
Executive (personal) Air Conditioner
The personal air conditioner is a stand alone unit designed for the executive. As we are all concerned with the spread of covid-19, it would sound right if we are can prevent us from sharing the air with the rest of the employees - this is done by isolating the office air and installing a personal air conditioner for the top executive. It is designed as a table top air conditioner where cooled air (or warm air) is ducted into the room via a table top vent. The compressor and the evaporator unit is placed inside the table, hidden away from view and powered with an under floor supply cable. Hot air (exhaled) is then extracted back to the system via a table edge device - exhaled air (which might contain pathogens) is then being sucked into the table where it is filtered and sanitized before it is either recirculated or expelled out of the room thus rendering the air in the office safe for breathing. This set up is especially useful if the air conditioning system is a centralised unit where the top executive will not have to share the air with the rest of the staffs. Where there is a visitor coming in, the system also ensures that exhaled air is being extracted away instead of allowing it to recirculate - safe environment where covid-19 is concerned.
Post Covid Classroom Ventilation
Since we are urging children to go back to school, we must do a bit of preparation on the ventilation system to be more suited to prevent the spread of virus. One of the way to brush up the ventilating system is to install an air driving system from top of the ceiling to the bottom of the floor and thence out of the room - we will not recommend an air draft from side to side as it would encourage the spread of pathogen from one person to the other. The ventilation air will have to be drawn in through some form of vent from the outside and thence downward towards the floor and exhausted out of the room through extracting pipe placed at the side of the room. You will then see that the exhaled air (might contain pathogens) from the student will then be drawn downwards towards the floor and out of the room through the side placed extracting pipeway. Althernatively the exhaled air could go through a form of filter and sanitizer and thence recirculated back into the room.
This sofa air conditioning system includes the extracting and expelling of exhaled air from the occupant.
The table air conditioner is a new concept designed to save energy consumption as well as to introduce a safe ventilation system in the light of spread of contagious deceases. As far as furniture is concerned, there have been efforts to enwrap furniture with anti-bacteria coatings to stave off the spread of virus. You could also spray the floor with anti-bacteria coatings like titanium dioxide but when we come to the very infectious deceases like coronavirus then there is very little thing else that we can do - because the virus is not only spread through particles but through air droplets that is exhausted through the mouth and nose. So we will need to tackle the air which in the CDC’s account should be beefed up through better air ventilation – we do have very little of ventilation through our present air conditioning system.
Table air conditioning system is a two in one system where you can not only air condition a space (like a dining space) you can also do a bit of air ventilation especially at the space where people expel their exhalation – where exhaled air from the mouth or nose may be contaminated with virus. In this system, air is cooled through an inbuilt air cooler in the table stump. Cooled air is then directed upwards towards an air diverter (with inbuilt lamp) which will then direct cooled air towards the diner sitting next to the table. Exhaled air (could be contaminated) is then being drawn into the table via a table edge attachment connected to a vacuum. The air is then filtered and sanitized and then fed to the evaporator of the air conditioning system. Alternatively the filtered and sanitized air could instead be exhausted to the outside through an underfloor channel.
As you would have noticed, the air conditioning system only need to cool the space around the table so it would not waste fuel as compared to the conventional system where cooled air is required to cool the whole room. Furthermore, the air conditioning system could be enabled with an intelligent system to only direct its air to the region of the occupant – no occupant means it will automatically shut down or throttled. This we believe is the future of air conditioning (or heating) as we are concerned with the greenhouse effect through the use of fossil fuel. This is also how we micro manage our environmental spaces – to further add to the micro management system there will be a need to add additional air conditioners to the place where people sit. But using micro management will mean added start-up cost as more units of air conditioners will be required although we could design a centralised air conditioning system by connecting all the micro units together (but run differently) to enjoy energy efficiency. The same can be deployed in an office environment..
It is also a better solution to integrate the exhausted air from the filtration part to the air conditioning part and this could be achieved by routing the exhaust air to the air conditioner intake point. As for the air conditioner system, we could have the conventional split air system by having the heated air from the evaporator being led to the outside by means of a channel or piping laid under the floor – assuming that the underfloor channel is built up from the start. It would also be obvious that an underfloor channel will serve an important function as far as an Anti Covid exercise is concerned. The underfloor channel could also serve as a heating chamber during winter. It could also double as a channel to draw away the washed water during floor washing exercise – another vacuum can be added to do cleaning as restaurants need to be kept clean all the time.
Ventilation system -from top to bottom for an effective draining away of exhalation
The Top to Down Air Ventilation system epitomises the future of air ventilation as a means to combat the spread of infectious diseases. It’s not only for the Covid fight but also for anti-flu fight and other diseases that has yet to come. A fundamental shift will need to be taken for retrofitting our ventilation system as the conventional ventilating principles were enacted during the early times of air conditioning. There should also be another exercise to better design our air conditioning system as it is already outdated because we will need to design a greener system – air condition and heating in our offices and homes take away twenty five per cent of our fuel bill. It would be even better if a smart/intelligent air conditioning system is installed. And still referring to the air conditioning unit of the above diagram, we could also use a solid state electronic air cooling unit such that it would provide a more silent mode of operation – it is also suitable because there is a smaller space to cool.
An integrated air conditioning and ventilation system with underfloor channel.
In cold climates, it is often the norm to have an underfloor heating system - so channels will be built to incorporate heating elements. This is usually an after thought construction as it was not in the original plan of the house to have underfloor heating - it would inevitably add to the cost. However, we would like to propose that an underfloor channel be built from the start as it will have many uses besides the incorporation of underfloor heating. One of the new use of an underfloor channel is that of exhausting exhaled air from the room thus offering a way to better ventilate the room - this become an important tool to fight coronavirus. The other future use is that of offering a channel where electricity can be tap through either wireless induction or radio wave charging - these are a bit futuristic but they are now available. Then there is an additional use - that of a convenient way to discharge floor cleaning waste water.
With the Covid 19 becoming epidemic according to the WHO, it is only right for us to prepare for the long term. Covid 19 as it mutates to become Delta Variant will be more like the Influenza virus that we have been used to for a long time now. Its common for flu victims to go for their booster annual shots of vacines so as to not become overly sick when a new variant strikes - it would be the same for Coronavirus victims. But we have to prepare the environment to be better suited to the epidemic by perhaps changing the way we prepare for the room space; furnitures will have to be designed to prevent the spread of virus.
The future of office environment - brought to you by a team of inventors who are concerned with how we can prevent the spread of coronavirus disease.
Here is a peep at the office of the future. Even from before the Covid 19 Pandemic, we were aware that the office environment was a place where flu can spread easily. Just have someone cough (the incessant kind) in the office and you will see somebody else pleading for grant of sick leave the next couple of days. It was easy to catch the flu and it was also easy to feign catching the flu because someone did went on sick leave! But you might say we were used to it already as nobody else apart from the manager did make his complaint known. So with the new era of pandemic going on and on, we will need to tackle this problem of spreading diseases. We have come up with a solution and as you can see in the diagram, we have designed a table attachment that can help us suck in the aerosol particles (might contain pathogens) as they were exhaled from a person that might harbour the virus. There you have it, the future scope of the office where you can work in a safe environment – as long as the table attachment is powered to suck in the exhalation.
The new generation intelligent air conditioner is able to sense where to direct the air - its green enough to be 60% more efficient than inverter air conditioner!
A bit of background on business furniture in the light of the coronavirus pandemic – there is this urge to keep our furniture clean off the coronavirus. Since it was established (vaguely) that the coronavirus can stay alive for a day or two on surfaces, we were therefore urged to keep our surfaces clean by dosing it with disinfectants – including all the furniture that we sat on. There was this directive that we will have to spray alcohols on surfaces that might hold the viruses just so that the viruses were killed. Then there was this directive that office desk be segregated by the fixing of a transparent piece of plastic to prevent the virus being blown over to the next table. Also we were advised that tables and chairs have to be wiped off with disinfectants. Hands too needed to be cleaned with alcohol – as are places where we use to touch be converted to touch-less devices. All these are because they have found that the coronavirus can stay alive for twenty four hours after they have been expelled from our chest – that was the primary reason.
However, we were later told that the coronavirus was also transmitted by aerosols – small sized particles that can remain floating in the air for a few minutes! And that lead us to begin taking precautions to protect us from the airborne virus – so our next thing to do is to shroud us away from the aerosols. But aerosols being airborne are another thing altogether as we can’t go and spray alcohol all over the place, including those spaces that we don’t have a right to. After having wasting a good amount of time thinking over the problem, we then came to a conclusion of redesigning the whole environment – not just for the moment but also for the long haul as it is predicted that the Covid 19 pandemic will be with us as an epidemic, what more the fast mutations of the virus. Thus we have redesigned the furniture to suit the times – including tables, chairs and floors. As a result the tables of the future will have the ability to extract the air that is exhaled by the person, the working desk too will have the ability to suck in the air given out by the office worker. In all you can now dispense with the wearing mask, the spraying of disinfectants and the worry about not getting fresh air through good ventilation – this is done by introducing a flow out channel under the floor.
What about when you are in a car? This is a solution for you to get rid of exhaled air when you are in a closed environment like that of a car. Here you will be able to see that exhaled air (might contain pathogens) is conveniently channelled into a vacuum and not into another person's nose. The extracted air is then sent to be sanitized and filtered and recirculated. The vacuum seat is made flexible and portable, so that you can bring along to another car or back home where you can place it over your sofa seat. There is also a portable battery to go with it which will power it for twenty minutes - it has also a connection to the car's electrical output. This solution might be made mandatory in future cars and public transports as these spaces can be the most likely space where virus spread - including how airplane spaces are designed to help extricate out the passengers exhaled breadth.
This is how exhaled air from the passenger is sucked out of the aircraft cabin space so that others will not have to inhale the contaminated air.
Public transport systems are now on the spot light as they have become places where the coronavirus is spread. As it is the public transport system was not design to prevent the spread of diseases even though we know that is where influenza is easily spread - but we were able to tolerate it. Since the arrival of the Covid 19 pandemic, we are now aware that we will have to redesign the ventilation system of these public transports - it also include public places like offices and shopping malls. It will also cost a bundle to implement but we have to start somewhere.
Trains and rapid transit vehicles are places where people sit close to each other - thus there is an urgent need to make changes to the ventilation system. Most trains will have some basic form of ventilation but it was not designed for the prevention of spread of diseases. Whatever air that is introduced into the train will have to be vented from the top and near the aisle. The air is then directed down (some with air conditioning) towards the passenger and thence led out of the train through a suction pipe placed on the floor pan - alternately the polluted air could be extracted away from a suction device underneath the seat. In this way, air which might be polluted with pathogens is drawn away from the passengers thus preventing others from breathing in the pathogens. It is also preferable that the air inflow and the air outflow be subjected to filteration and sanitization.
Hospital Room Ventilation
As hospitals have become the center of our attention, it is only right that we design it right in the presence of coronavirus given out by patients. This is important because we have front line players working in the environment twenty four hours a day non stop during the pandemic - it is our duty to safeguard the workers from being infected with the virus. One of the way is to redesign the ventilation system - the present system is the negative pressure type which does not extract out the exhaled air from the patient. The right thing to do is to vent the air (could be cooled) is from the ceiling to the bottom of the floor. It is also important to extract out the air to a filtering system and also have them sanitized before it is let out into the open. A filtered (HEPA filtering) and sanitized (ethanol and ultra violet light) air can also be recirculated into the room. You will have noticed that there is always a down draught where the hospital workers work - this to draw away the air given out by the patient. There is also a special extracting pipe underneath the bed to draw away the air. Hope that the CDC will recomend this system for their fight against all form of airborne diseases.
The new post covid roll-in roll-out modular hospital bed with IoT enabled
This is the new modular roll-in roll-out unitary hospital bed capsule designed to conveniently add to the hospital space as when needed. This modular bed capsule (made from light material) is fitted with plug on air conditioning and ventilation trunking and it is especially designed with the need of additional hospital beds to help tackle the outbreak of contagious disease - as you can easily roll them in to any temporary space built for patients and to roll out when you do not need them. The whole capsule unit is made easily fitting into a shipping container for transport purposes - can also be disassembled. The ventilation system is intelligent enough to sense where the patient is and will go to provide an air curtain (circular in nature) drafting downward surrounding the patient, partly shielding the patient from the attending healthcare worker, a bit like the ventilated headboard but operates automatically. Unlike the negative pressure air ventilating system of the conventional intensive care unit, this system employs the drafting of air from the top to the bottom and thence flowing out of the space from an extracting pipe below the bed. The outflow of ventilating air is passed through a filter (HEPA) and sanitizer (ethanol) before it is discharged out. Alternatively the filtered and sanitized air can be recirculated back. The system is designed into a modular form for easy transporting and building as well as being disassembled for even easier handling. The air conditioning (or heating) uses an electronic module to save on energy usage. However, in order that the air conditioning works efficiently, there is a need to exhaust the hot air from the evaporator unit just like the split air conditiong system - but using an electronic module will mean that it operates silently except for a low frequency noise from the fan. Enabled with IoT and sensors, the capsule hospital bed is able to operate in remote areas. It is also electrical, air fluid and water connected. Learn more about Hospital Capsule Bed
Anti Covid Factory Ventilation
We are now faced with increasing spread of coronavirus at factory sites - that is because there is very little ventilation to speak of. As fatory spaces are normally of the spacious type, workers do not feel that they are experiencing stifling conditions especially when there is air conditioning to boot. But with the covid pandemic going on forever, health officers are becoming very concerned because there is a large number of infections coming from the workers. How could we not be concerned as there is very little of fresh air getting into the environment - bringing air in will increase use of fuel. However, there is a way of averting the spread of virus in the factory environment by simply adjusting how air flows. Our suggestion is that let the air in from the top of the ceiling and allowing them to flow down towards the floor area - and allowing the air to be extracted out of the room through an underfloor channel. The extracted air should be fed to a filter and a sanitizer before it is discharge out or recirculated back. In this way, the air (exhaled) between two persons will be drawn under by the down draft ventilating air instead of being inhaled by the person facing the worker who might unkonwingly harbour pathogens (asymtomatic). In this system air will be imediately drawn away instead of it lingering in the space - coronavirus droplets could stay active for twenty four hours! Our suggested system also includes an incoming air vent that is intelligent enough (it could move around) to direct air to the direction where it is most needed - needless to say, intelligence is brough in to help save fuel. The ventilation system should work together with the air conditioning system in order to cut power bill.
Think twice about dining at restaurants for now - says virologist who are concerned with the absence of any form of dining hall ventilation! When you patronise a cafe at your neighbourhood you must ensure that it is safe for you to spend your time nibbing at the coffee. Cafe operators must make sure that they have adequate ventilation in their space because it is a way to help prevent spread of pathogen. It is not only for the coronavirus but also for other less virulent pathogens like influenza. Air should preferabbly be vented into the space from the ceiling and then vented down to the floor area - will help prevent spread of virus between two persons sitting together. An exhaust system at the floor area will help the contanimated air to be drawn out. However the drawn out air should also be filtered and sanitized before it is being channeled out or recirculated into the system.
Always have an air curtain between two talking persons
We are now learning to live with Covid 19 as it has become an epicdemic. One of the most common way where the coronavirus is spread is while people are speaking to each other as the virus is known to be spread by droplets. So what can we do if we were to want to feel relaxed while talking to one another? The answer is to have an air curtain between two persons, assuming that only two persons are talking. How then to maintain an air curtain you might ask? Well, there are plenty of air curtains employed by factories or at the door entrance. A smaller version designed to cater to the home will be useful. You could deploy it at your living room where you entertain your guest and have it hung from the ceiling. A more complicated version produces two ring curtains to restrain the air from being inhaled by each other. Yet another more intelligent version is able to move its position such that it is able to track the object that it is throwing down the air curtain. You would have realised that the air curtain helps in isolating the air that we breathe out - it goes a long way to prevent spread of disease. By all means also have a suction device at the floor so that contaminated air can be got rid off.
Intelligent Air Purifier working in coordination with intelligent air conditioner
Freshly designed intelligent air purifier which is able to move around on its own power and intelligence to the area where there is plenty of warmth (humans) to suck in polluted air for filtering and sanitising. Designed to work together with an intelligent air conditioner where wireless communication is done between both of them. Furthermore, the intelligent air purifier is self-powered to move on its own volition. It is also able to find its way to wireless recarghing points placed either at the wall or under the floor to get extra charge. It is alo able to sense the amount of carbon dioxide in the room - when excessive amount of CO2 will trigger increase suction of polluted air into the air purifier for treatment.
Aircraft Cabin Ventilation
A modern day (post covid) aircraft cabin ventilation system to avoid spread of diseases. Air is vented from the top of the cabin and then it travels downward towards the passenger and thence exhausted out of the system by floor level venting ducts. The exhausted air is filtered and sanitized before exiting the aircraft. A small portion may be recirculated back into the system on demand. Travel safe with the new system - passengers may want to demand this system before they buy their tickets as some of the existing carrier do have similar systems.
Conference Hall Ventilation
With the presence of covid virus, there is a need to re-engineer the air ventilation of conference halls - there is no air ventilation in conference hall to speak off. It's standard practice not to have air ventilation in our air conditioned halls as having it will tantamount to energy leak. But because we need air ventilation in a space to dilute the air pollutants (virus infested) to reduce our risk of catching harmful pathogens as required by the CDC, we have no choice but to re-engineer the air conditioning system of indoor space - this we have designed an air ventilation system to get better air for people to breathe. Air may be vented from the top of the hall and thence directed downwards towards the floor level where exhausting pipes is laid to extract the polluted air out of the environment. Some engineers have suggested that the vented air be filtered and sanitized befor it reaches down to the participants as a precaution - but it must also be filtered and sanitized before it is exhausted out of the environment so that others will not have to breathe in the pathogens.
Are our roadways polluted with virus?
Motor Biker with full face mask
Bicyclist with full mask
Motor car with closed windows.
Well, nobody has done research as to whether our roadways are filled with pathogens - not yet but you can bet that the air just above roads are filled with viruses. So you will have to be extra careful when you go cruising on the roads - you will need to wind up your car windows and also ensure that you have minimum air intake into your cabin. As for motor bikers, you will need to wear full protective gears like full face mask that will also protect your eyes. It is definitely not business as usual because you will find the virus every where and because of it you will need to take steps to protect yourself as the virus that is being churned up from the road will survive while airborne for a long time. Viruses, some of them had died ans some of them still alive that have fallen unto the road surface will be thrown up into the air when a vehicle passes by - and you don't want to be the next guy to suck it up right? For those who enjoyed riding their bicycles, when you take to the roads, be aware that they are plenty of viruses being churned upwards when a vehicle passes by - so you would need to wear full face gear in order that you don't become a unit of the statistics. It is now considered to be dangerous on the roads - many people do not realized that!

The world is still waiting?
The world is still not using one of its most effective weapons against Covid 19 – properly ventilating public spaces – more than two years into the pandemic, experts warn. At the moment there is a "fragile, armed peace" with Covid-19, said Antoine Flahault, director of the Institute of Global Health at the University of Geneva. "In the hopes of stemming the tide of the pandemic and reducing mortality, we need to reduce the level of contamination, which the vaccine cannot do alone," he told AFP. He further advised "We need a new phase – improving the quality of indoor air."
And when they talk, sing or shout in a closed off or poorly ventilated room, these virus which are carried in aerosols can remain in the air for some time, moving around the space and greatly increasing the risk of infection – and if you are in an enclosed room, you stand a chance to being infected by not only Covid, but by other types of influenza as well.
A team of researchers from the UK Health Security Agency and the University of Bristol reviewed 18 studies in several countries on airborne transmission. In research published in the BMJ in June 2022, they found that people can infect each other when they are more than two metres apart. We know one thing for sure: if you open a window, or well-ventilate a space, the virus-carrying aerosols dissipate like smoke. But experts say that nowhere near enough is being done to ventilate public and private spaces across the world."On the whole, this is an issue that governments have not yet taken up," Flahault said and by extension, the world is not ready for another bout of deadly disease. But not all thing are lost for as little by little, people knows where to go and where not to go and at the right time – it is much safer to enter an enclosed public place at the time just when they are opened. Are you ready?
