Four hundred buses in the UK and Ireland repurposed for transporting frontline workers have been fitted with an Israeli-made air purification system that kills Covid-19 and informs passengers of the air quality.

Aura Air, a start-up from Tel Aviv, has finished outfitting the 400 converted tourist buses with the purpose of carrying essential workers safely. With its unique data-driven air purification system, the technology uses three methods to kill coronavirus and informs passengers on the state of seven air quality indexes in their vehicle.

Jerusalem Post reports that originally tested at Sheba Medical Center, where it is still in use today, the system was found to be more than 99.9% effective in disinfecting indoor air from bacteria, viruses, fungi, and molds and catching particles that can cause sickness.

In Israel, the company also works mainly with tour bus companies, which could help revive a local industry devastated by the pandemic.

The air purification system obliterates coronavirus using two patented methods: a Sterionizer and a copper laced high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter. In addition, it cleans the air using ultraviolet C (UVC) light.

The Sterionizer is an updated ionizer, as the older models can cause serious health problems such as lung damage. An ionizer works by distributing positive and negative ions into the air, which starts a process that destroys the sickness-causing protein constructions of viruses, such as the coronavirus and influenza.
