Some Recipients have recently faced H1N1 Flu Outbreaks
JAMAICA, N.Y., May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- SANYO Biomedical and Environmental Solutions (SANYO), a division of SANYO North America, announces the donation of professional-use air purification systems to provide an added level of safe, healthy air for areas where people gather indoors in the North American market. The first recipients to receive the donated SANYO 'Virus Washer' professional-use air purification systems are school Health/Nursing Offices in Queens, NY, where recent outbreaks of H1N1 flu have caused several school closings. In addition, Medports at JFK and LaGuardia Airports operated by Dr. Brian Dalia, Executive Director and Dr. Gerald Surya, MD Medical Director, will be receiving donated units. The Medports are the medical offices located inside the airports responsible for care and evaluation of ill or injured travelers and employees.
"Given the recent circumstances with the new type of H1N1 flu, we decided to increase the speed of our North American outreach while benefiting entities in need, where the threat of outbreaks seems to be increased," said Toshiaki Inoue, Division President, Biomedical and Environmental Division of SANYO North America. "These donations will also expedite the introduction of the technology to North America, creating an ideal situation and offering a potential solution to help suppress airborne viruses and bacteria."
With future plans to bring SANYO's proprietary electrolyzed water technology utilized in the 'Virus Washer' air purification system to effectively "wash the air" to North America, New York will become the pilot market with school Nurse's Offices and the Medports at JFK and LaGuardia Airports the first to use this cutting-edge technology.
