Can the new coronavirus be killed with a hand dryer?

No, hand dryers cannot kill 2019-nCoV. To protect yourself against the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV), wash your hands quite often with sanitiser gel or with soap and water. Once cleaned, dry them well with paper towels or with a hot-air hand dryer.

The WHO (World Health Organisation) was asked this question by many people and companies in the professional cleaning and hygiene sector during the present COVID-19 pandemic.

Considering the answer given by the WHO experts, Jofel equipped all their hand dryers with HEPA filters to help fight the virus that is harming humanity so much.

HEPA filters (High Efficiency Particle Arresting) are, unlike other filters, ready to retain much smaller particles.

The efficiency of HEPA filters for COVID-19 is equal to or higher than 99.99 %*, according to an independent study: NASA/TM—2016–218224 (USA)

With these results, we can say that Jofel hand dryers are of great help to fight bacteria and COVID-19.

The models that Jofel currently offers with a HEPA filter are:

AVE: AA180T0, AA18000, AA185T0, AA18500, AA19600, AA19300, AA19000
