CleanAir EXP, the company behind a commercial air purification system that was touted as a COVID-19 killer by leaders of Dream City Church in Arizona where President Donald Trump held a packed rally on Tuesday, said their system does not kill the deadly virus.

“We understand there is recent confusion around the claims made by one of our customers around our laboratory testing. We’re at the forefront of air and surface purification testing and technology — we tested with a third-party Certified Biosafety Laboratory on the best coronavirus surrogates available (Coronavirus 229E and Cystovirus Phi6) and found our patented technology leads to a 99.9% elimination of airborne coronavirus surrogates,” said Tim Bender, CEO of CleanAir EXP, in a statement to The Christian Post.

“We do not, however, eliminate COVID-19 at this time. Our coronavirus surrogate testing results are significant for the future of clean air. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with the CDC for additional laboratory testing and support the CDC’s guidelines on hygiene habits to prevent the spread of COVID-19.”
