PREVENTING MICROBES FROM ENTERING THE AIRCRAFT
What are the airlines recommending in order to restore travelers’ confidence with “preventing virus from boarding the airplane”?
- Medical check to ensure health stability for travel
- Utilizing electronic devices vs. in-person exchange of travel documents
- Advance planning for the varying travel requirements of passengers out-of-state and out-of-country
From the airplane builder’s perspective, the next step with preventing microbes from entering a commercial aircraft was an evaluation of World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommended “disinfectants”. Upon closer inspection of WHO and CDC recommendations for addressing microbes in today’s environment, one will find that alcohol-based and bleach-based products may be at the top of their lists. However, these products post serious risks to consumers with long-term exposure.
Bleach must be applied and allowed to soak for 15-minutes on any surface then be rinsed with water; the water’s pH affects its effectiveness. Chlorine and bleach leave a harsh odor that can trigger respiratory conditions.
Alcohol is only effective while it is wet, and alcohol dries within 20-seconds. Constant reapplication of alcohol-based hand sanitizer causes skin to crack and peel. Medical research has shown that overuse of topical alcohol-based sanitizer is known to increase blood alcohol levels.
To fully comprehend the adverse reactions with bleach, chlorine, and alcohol use with sanitizing, it is recommended that air travelers read informative articles published on the GlanHealth™ website prior to takeoff.
AIRBORNE MICROBES & PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)
One major airline builder’s website states the use of high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) air filters is a first line of defense with sanitizing an airplane for air travel. The airplane builder website states these HEPA filters are “similar to those used in hospitals, capture more than 99.9% of viruses and bacteria”. These HEPA filters are part of a multi-phased sanitizing protocol for airline passenger travel that includes “preventing microbes from entering the aircraft, keeping the aircraft virus-free, and maintaining a healthy cabin environment”.
While it sounds reassuring to have fresh air flowing into the aircraft, airborne microbes still exist with exhalation by passengers and flight crew. Short of directly connecting each air traveler to the HEPA filtration system, the fact remains that exhaled air by passengers and crew is a source of fresh microbes entering the cabin of the aircraft. As these microbes fill the breathable airspace for all on-board, attention turns to personal protection equipment (PPE).
The mandate to wear PPE — masks and face coverings — has become a reality with air travelers. The fabric weave in PPE varies and may be limited in its ability to prevent microbe proliferation. There has been much discussion about this in the science community. Individuals must look to other means of protection from airborne microbes with regard to wearing PPE.
Washable PPE face coverings can be protected for up to 28-days with GlanHealth Laundry Shield that is easily added to the fabric softener feature of any washing machine. Microbes that come in contact with fabric that is protected with Laundry Shield will succumb to GlanHealth’s revolutionary mode of action for sanitizing safety.
