Samsung Charters Flight To Deliver 51,000 Air Purifiers To Schools
With children preparing to return to schools, the push to keep facilities safe is a priority. As such, Samsung chartered an urgent flight from their manufacturing hub in Korea to deliver air purifiers as part of the safe return-to-school plan in Victoria.
Over the next four months, Samsung will supply 51,000 of their AX7500 air purifiers to public classrooms in Victoria.
“It’s tremendous to see that the Department of Education and Training Victoria has reviewed a multitude of options to keep Victorian students safe as they return to school in a post-COVID environment and we are thrilled to be a part of their plan,” says Jeremy Senior, Samung Electronic’s Vice President of Consumer Electronics.
With research showing air purifiers can help minimise the spread of harmful airborne contaminates, the company prioritised flying the purifiers with HEPA filters into the country.
“Research has shown air purifiers can help minimise the spread of harmful airborne contaminates,” adds Mr Senior. “We believe that the addition of air purifiers with HEPA filters into classrooms will also bring confidence that the right precautions are being taken as we get into the rhythm of our new normal.”
With COVID remaining a serious problem, the Minister for Education in Victoria, Hon. James Merlino MP, says, “I know Victorian families can’t wait to see their kids back in the classroom – but we need to keep them safe once they’re there, and we’re delivering ventilation devices to prevent as much transmission on school sites as possible.”
