Indoor Air Quality Featured on 60 Minutes
In a new 60 Minutes episode released on October 29, 2023, they explored what the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us about preventing the spread of potentially deadly respiratory infections and utilizing indoor air quality monitoring systems.
Because we now know that viruses like the one that causes COVID-19 can travel through the air much farther than six feet, public health advice focusing on social distancing, handwashing, and masking wasn’t enough. Air quality scientists say that from the start of the pandemic, they should have focused on improving the air we breathe indoors.
In this 60 Minutes feature, Airthings indoor air quality monitoring devices were highlighted as one simple solution to improving indoor air quality and curbing the spread of viruses.
