Why the government is encouraging people to open their windows this winter

The government is encouraging people to keep their homes well ventilated during the winter.

The guidance is part of a new public information campaign launched to highlight how letting fresh air into indoor spaces can reduce the risk of infection from coronavirus by over 70 per cent.

As we spend more time indoors, experts are recommending that the public open windows for short, sharp bursts of 10-15 minutes regularly throughout the day, or leave windows open a small amount continuously, to remove any infected particles lingering in the room.

The new advice illustrates how coronavirus lingers in spaces with no fresh air, increasing the risk of people breathing in infected particles, and how the risk can be reduced significantly by regularly ventilating enclosed areas.

But apart from opening your windows, which let's face it, in the cold and wet winter months is not ideal, there are other solutions to ensuring that the air in your home is kept free from harmful viruses, such as the use of a professional quality air purifier.

Vybra Solutions currently supply the Winix Air Purifier to thousands of UK dental surgeries for this purpose, allowing them to safely operate during the current pandemic.
