CENTERVILLE, MA--(Marketwire - June 07, 2011) - UV Flu Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: UVFT) (the "Company") announced today that it had received its first order of ViraTech UV-400's for test and evaluation for the Chinese marketplace. The units will be manufactured to Chinese electrical standards, and will be shipped for evaluation to 3 hospitals in different Chinese cities.
"This is our first entry into the biggest potential market for our products in the world," said John Lennon, President of UV Flu. "China has approximately 330,000 hospitals, with even greater numbers of clinics, and the spread of airborne bacteria and viruses is epidemic in many areas. Children in many cities are examined before they're allowed on school grounds, and it's not uncommon to see large numbers of people in hospital waiting areas with IVs, providing a fertile environment for the airborne spread of bacteria.
"We have been patiently building our brand over the last several months, and the results are about to be realized. We now have RX-3000s in a significant number of the top hospitals in America, and are currently back-ordered, while a new program we are starting with Hotels later this month is expected to put us in a similar back-order situation on the UV Flu side. We also hope to have our new initiatives in China, along with the Mideast, introduced later this month," said Mr. Lennon.
Further details regarding the Company's business, acquisitions, financial reports and agreements are filed as part of the Company's continuous public disclosure as a reporting issuer under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission's ("SEC") EDGAR database.
