The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have updated their SARS-CoV-2 guidance, recognising that aerosol transmission is a key pathway by which the virus spreads.
Aerosols are small droplet particles that can become airborne. It is now proven that in inadequately ventilated and crowded enclosed areas, transmission occurs by this mechanism because the aerosols remain suspended in the air for prolonged periods of time.
In the ongoing pandemic circumstances that we find ourselves in today, the value and importance of air quality and sterilisation cannot be over-emphasised if we are to reduce transmission and infection rates.
