WILMINGTON, Del., Dec. 18, 2020 — (PRNewswire) — Yesterday, Integrated Viral Protection (IVP) co-hosted a hybrid on-site and virtual event in an important step in the fight against COVID-19. The event marked Farmers headquarters becoming the first corporate office building to implement the world's only COVID-killing Biodefense Indoor Air Protection System™ to enhance their HVAC infrastructure. Wilmington's Mayor and leading innovators, scientists and engineers were in attendance at the event that demonstrated how science and technology are leading businesses through this public health crisis and getting Americans back to work.
"The argument of whether this works or not is over," said guest panelist Rick Perry, 14th US Secretary of Energy and former Governor of Texas. "This is a powerful tool that deals with COVID-19. And yes, we're facing COVID now but, in the future, there will be other influenzas, other viruses to deal with. This isn't about a quick fix for now. This is about a long-term investment in your business, in your schools, in your airports, and the like. This is about letting your customers, students, and staff know that they can come into your building and be safe."
Guest speakers discussed how cleaner indoor air and advancements in technology will help support recovery from the global pandemic. IVP's award-winning technology is proven to destroy SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 (99.999%), anthrax spores, and other airborne pathogens instantaneously, in a single pass.
"No one thought COVID would come to Victoria, but COVID doesn't have boundaries," added Christina Adrean, CEO of Post Acute Medical. "Our community now believes our hospital is the safest in Victoria as we're the only one to have this wonderful machine. We haven't had a single employee or patient contract COVID since the filtration system was installed."
"Being the first company to put this innovative heated-air filtration system into our office building is the latest way in which we live out our mission of being the leader in delivering peace of mind, innovating for customers whenever and wherever they need us," said Jeff Dailey, CEO, Farmers Group, Inc.
In addition to the Farmers headquarters, the IVP Air technology has been implemented in Hilton Worldwide hotels, Houston's George R. Brown Convention Center, the Texas A&M Health Science Center and student housing, True North Classical Academy in Miami, Florida, Slidell Independent School District in Slidell, Texas and Post Acute Medical Rehabilitation, with sites in Texas and Las Vegas.
"We're suffering. A lot of people are suffering," said Monzer Hourani, CEO, Integrated Viral Protection, and Founder of Medistar Corporation. "It's about time people understand that if we're going to get rid of COVID-19 one day, we need this advancement working in tandem with the vaccine. We need to be one nation, one people, and work together, be united, and use science to overcome COVID-19."
