Germ-free drinking water in the hospital

Dear Sir or Madam,

Pathogens like to multiply in the water pipes of hospitals as long as they are not fought regularly. Thus, hospitals spend a lot of money on hygiene measures each year – for example for filters or to flush the pipes with hot water. A device in the hospital of Düren, Germany, shows that there is an easier way. See how it works in our latest video.

Stay healthy!
