In its fight against Covid-19 and for the protection of bus occupants, Daimler Buses is relying on a high fresh air content, a fast exchange of air and anti-viral high-performance particle filters in its vehicles. The effectiveness of these protective measures has also been confirmed by the research report issued by the Hermann Rietschel Institute at the Technical University of Berlin in a study.
Prof. Dr. Martin Kriegel, Head of the Institute: "The situation in touring coaches with a fast exchange of air is not particularly critical for passengers when compared with other daily situations – as long as the AHA rules are maintained (AHA stands for Abstand, Hygiene and Alltagsmaske - Distance, Hygiene and Face mask). There is, therefore, very little risk for a tour group, even if one of its members is infected."
Gustav Tuschen, Head of Development at Daimler Buses: "The study by the Technical University of Berlin showed, that the measures in our buses, such as the use of active filters with anti-viral coating, can make bus tourism safer. That is why we are clearing this filter technology and the findings from the study for competitors."
