Εξηγούνται οι παράγοντες ποιότητας του αέρα

  • Διοξείδιο του άνθρακα (COXNUMX)

The measurement of the CO₂ (Carbon Dioxide) concentration provides a measure of what percentage of the air we inhale consists of air that has already been exhaled by other people, this is called the Rebreathed Fraction. An elevated rebreathed fraction equals a greater probability of the spread of infection.

  • Particulate Matter (1 μm, 2.5 μm, 10 μm)

Covid-19 and other viruses can live in Particulates in the air and are the cause of Droplet and Airborne Transmission. When these particulates are inhaled they deposit into the respiratory system and deliver their virus payload.

  • Υγρασία (RH)

Relative humidity plays an important role in the survival of virus’s in the air as well as how long they remain airborne.

  • Πτητικές οργανικές ενώσεις (VOC)

Volatile Organic Compounds or VOCs, refer to organic chemical compounds that can adversely affect human health. They are emitted as vapors from certain solids or liquids and include a variety of chemicals. VOC is seen often in cleaning supplies, adhesives, paints, and air fresheners.

  • Διοξείδιο του αζώτου (NOXNUMX)

Οι κύριες πηγές NOXNUMX είναι κυρίως οι εκπομπές από τα καυσαέρια των οχημάτων και η οικιακή θέρμανση. Η μακροχρόνια έκθεση στο NOXNUMX μπορεί να προκαλέσει ένα ευρύ φάσμα σοβαρών προβλημάτων υγείας, όπως υπέρταση, διαβήτη, καρδιακές και καρδιαγγειακές παθήσεις, ακόμη και θάνατο.
