UK/IRELAND - Israeli Tech Guarantees Covid-Free Buses

Arno Froese

The Tel Aviv-headquartered Aura Air startup has finished outfitting 400 tourist buses, newly repurposed to carry frontline workers in the United Kingdom and Ireland, 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.

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.

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.

“These are the particles that are emitted when you breathe, cough, sneeze, talk, which are known to carry the virus and float in the air for 15 to 30 minutes,” he told The Media Line, explaining that PM2.5 particles are between 1.5 microns and 2.5 microns in size, and PM10 particles are 2.5 to 10 microns in size.

A micron is one-thousandth of a millimeter.

Boosting consumer confidence is a critical step in rebuilding the tourism industry in Israel, where tourists tend to spend a lot of time on buses.

“We went from 100,000 tourist [customers] In 2019 to 0. If we want to get back to our numbers, we have to create a safe environment for [them],” Samuel Smadja, president and owner of Sar-El Tours in Jerusalem, told The Media Line, noting that he has installed the Israeli-created technology on 25 buses.

Arno's commentary

A high point in Israel’s tourism revenue was recorded in 2019: $7.5 billion. Now it’s near zero in 2020 due to Covid-19.

As the article shows, Israel does not give up, but has already made the necessary preparations; namely, the invention of Covid-free buses. Not just Israel, but buses in the UK and Ireland are also being equipped with Israeli technology. Quite naturally, other countries will follow suit.

There is no end to technological developments quickly surfacing after catastrophes such as the coronavirus invasion of planet earth. Thus, this Israeli invention will contribute toward the re-implementation of the tourism industry globally.
