Reduce Virus's - Viruses alone are much too small to be stopped by all normal filters. The British Berkefeld filter should still achieve a significant reduction because viruses are usually associated with infected cells or attached to other organisms and these can be stopped by the filter. For best protection against virus's, use the the Black Berkey Filtration element.
