One hundred six (106) units of negative ion air purifier were distributed today to all the offices under the City Government of Dumaguete so that the quality of air circulating within the confined spaces of the air-conditioned offices full of employees and citizens, who are transacting business, will be improved using ultraviolet light that destroys air contaminants.
Department and division heads in the City Government of Dumaguete expressed gratitude to Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo for approving the purchase of negative ion air purifiers that will be used in the different offices to help minimize the spread of germs, bacteria and viruses (including COVID-19) in the workplaces and contribute to better health.
The air purifier also uses filtration with HEPA (high efficiency particulate air); activated carbon, cold catalyst and negative ion as another means to prevent the spread of infection, allergy and diseases among the city personnel and members of the public.
