This is a change from its previous assessment that the virus is primarily spread by contaminated droplets that fell to the ground. As parents, the latest development makes for a more worrying situation and it's now even harder to protect our little ones.

The purifiers will add another layer of protection to mask wearing, social distancing and other precautions consumers are advised to take.\u201d AIRFREE\u00ae Products Electronics SA is based in Portugal and the company\u2019s products are distributed in more than 60 countries globally.

The AIRFREE\u00ae\u2019s proprietary TSS\u2122 heats up to a temperature of 200 degrees Centigrade. It was created to silently draw bacteria, viruses, and other organic organisms into the ceramic core heated ducts to be destroyed by heat purifying the room. There is also no hazardous air filter replacement, which avoids potentially releasing the captured organisms back into the environment.\u201d In Malaysia, AIRFREE\u00ae purifiers are available at selected retailers, online, or their Lazada Online Store. Price range starts from RM649 to RM1,990, subject to the model. Discover more interesting and fun stories to read on Motherhood.com.my!
