Expiratory Aerosols and Infection Spread

The ILAQH has been conducting extensive studies related to infection spread over many years, including responses to the current COVID-19 pandemic. The ILAQH’s work in this field layed a foundation for the understanding of size distribution and size of origin, as well as the mechanisms of breath from human expirated aerosols; burden of cough aerosols, droplet fate in indoor environments, including the risk of airborne transmission in cars; indoor air, the impact of room ventilation, and the risk of airborne infection transmission in hospitals and other health care settings; the use of face masks raising pollution risks; population-level genomics and global spread of human transmissible infection; airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2; as well as the estimation of airborne viral emissions.
