uHoo Virus Index
The ‘uHoo Virus Index’ is a patent pending technology that uses the power of air quality data to help you know how to deactivate viruses in your home/workplace and how your air quality affects your health and immune system. Optimize your air quality so you can deactivate viruses, if they’re present.
Helps you know how to deactivate viruses in your home/workplace
Ensure optimal temperature to facilitate virus deactivation
Reduce chances of droplets becoming dry aerosols that can stay suspended in the air
Understand why arthritic pains and headaches happen
Ensure proper ventilation to allow stale air to flow out of your indoor space
Know which chemicals and products to keep out
Minimize particle pollution that allow viruses to latch themselves onto and stay airborne
Avoid fatigue, chest pain and poisoning
Minimize irritation of your lungs and reduce outdoor pollution from entering your home/workplace
Relieve throat irritation and learn which gadgets affect your health
Air Quality & COVID-19
COVID-19 is a highly infectious disease compared to its 2003 counterpart, SARS. Its health effects vary among people from having no symptoms at all to having severe respiratory distress. According to CDC reports, people with serious underlying medical conditions are “at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.”
Scientists also found that air pollution contributes to the severity of the disease. A nationwide study, conducted by Harvard University, showed that counties in the USA with high levels of air pollution before the COVID-19 crisis have higher death rates (defined as COVID-19 deaths per total population).

Levels of the uHoo Virus Index
These levels are determined based on scientific analysis of five air quality factors which include Temperature, Relative Humidity, PM2.5, Carbon Dioxide, and Nitrogen Dioxide.
- Good: COVID-19 survival is low and airborne transmission is unlikely.
- Mild: COVID-19 survival is moderate and airborne transmission is possible but air quality poses little to almost no direct health risk for people not sensitive to air pollution.
- Bad: COVID-19 survival is prolonged and airborne transmission is likely.
- Severe: COVID-19 survival is high and airborne transmission is likely.
uHoo is Your First Step to Clean Air
“Make the invisible visible.”
Like viruses, air pollution cannot be eliminated when we cannot see what we are dealing with. Seeing the problem allows us to create solutions that actually work instead of guessing.
The only way to know what problems you’re facing is by seeing exactly what you’re breathing, and uHoo would be able to help you do that.
