Innovation vs Coronavirus

There is a risk of covid-19 infections spreading in enclosed spaces via microdroplets.
Covid-19 transmission occurred through the air in a crowded and poorly ventilated space

Coronavirus spreads through the air as aerosol

The letter, led by internationally recognised air quality and health expert Lidia Morawska from the Queensland University of Technology, makes an appeal for public health organisations like the WHO to address the "overwhelming" research on the dangers of microdroplets.
Technology and innovationn may assist making enclosed spaces - buses, trains, cafes, and so on - safer.
  • An air filtration unit can remove microdroplets from air.
  • Fitting the air filtration unit with an anti-viral mechanism, such as an ultraviolet lamp may enhance its ability to remove coronavirus contamination.
  • A sensor capable of detecting coronavirus particles installed in the air intake of an air filtration unit would allow it to serve like a "smoke detector" - warning people of the need to evacuate a contaminated room.
