Tools for Defensive

We have very dry and cold winter in Tokyo area. We don't have any rain for over 25 days. It provides flu virus propagation. In fact, the flu is rampant among people everywhere by now.
So humidifiers are the necessary tools in our area. But it's not enough for virus protection. We may have some tools(or weapon?) against virus.
冬の東京は大変乾燥していて寒いのです。すでに25日以上雨が降っていません。それがウイルスの増殖を引き起こします。事実、私の地域では現在インフルエンザが猛威をふるっている最中です。ですから加湿器は必要不可欠な道具なのです。しかしそれだけでは充分と言えないのです。やはりウイルスに対して何か道具(それとも武器?)が必要なのです。

What is Plasuma Cluster?

プラズマクラスター

Last season I got a new humidifier that came up with Plasuma Cluster function. I think it worked. In fact, my coworker has caught flu but I didn't. We worked in the same small room together so I was under such risky situation. But I didn't get any.
So I decided to get some more air purifier in this season to make it better.
昨シーズンにプラズマクラスター機能付きの加湿器を買いました。これがとても良く効いたのではないかと思います。実際、同僚がインフルエンザになりましたが私は大丈夫でした。かなり危ない環境にいたと言えるでしょうが、私達は狭い部屋で一緒に仕事をしていたのです。
そんな訳で今シーズンはさらに空気清浄機を買い足して、対策強化です。
The photo above is a portable air purifier. I can bring it with me anywhere. It also has rechargeable batteries.
上の写真はポータブルタイプの機種です。携帯電話よりやや大きい位で機動性に富んでいます。充電式です。
Besides, I got another one for my car. It can be charged in my car and can fit in the cup holders. Lately I use them everyday for such flu protection. Can it shield me from the threat?
そしてさらにもう一つ、車用のを買いました。車内で充電できカップホルダーに収まります。最近はこれらを全て使っています。インフルエンザの脅威から守ってもらえるかしら?

Hi Nobue, I'm glad they're working for you. I hope you stay healthy.
The articles were interesting. I'm surprised the media inthe US hasn't shown the devices. Must be were not having a flu epidemic.

Hopefully I'm away from flu by now. I was surprised that the media didn't show Plasmacluster. They may worry about outbreak of flu epidemic?? The machine would get rid of the virus though....
The official site of US didn't tell much. Now it make sense to me.
On the other hand Canadian site tells more details. I'm wondering how the media show this.
