Minimizing COVID-19 Transmission with Esco Lifesciences Solutions


Share

According to World Health Organization (WHO), the SARS-CoV-2 virus can spread between people when an infected person coughs, sneezes, speaks, sings, or breathes. The virus particle size can also vary from small aerosols to large droplets. Aerosol transmission can reach farther distances while droplet transmission is evident at short distances. Data shows that the virus is mostly transmitted between people in close contact of approximately 1 meter. At this distance, there is a likely chance of inhaling or coming in direct contact with droplets.

Certain situations such as being close to others for prolonged periods, staying in areas where there is increased exhalation (exercising, shouting, singing, etc.), or enclosed spaces with minimal air ventilation increase the spread of COVID-19 and risk of infection. There is a greater risk in places where these factors overlap and it is advised to avoid the “three Cs”.

How to minimize the spread of COVID-19?

The spread of COVID-19 can be reduced at its different stages of transmission. Contact transmission can be lessened with good personal hygiene. For droplet transmission, wearing the correct type of face mask properly and practicing physical distancing are simple but effective ways to minimize the spread. On the other hand, aerosol transmission can be more difficult to control compared to contact and droplet transmission. The installation of air filters, ionizers, and purifiers in rooms decreases the likelihood of aerosol dispersion. However, if these solutions are unavailable, the next best measure is to properly ventilate the room to purge the aerosols and allow the air inside to be refreshed.
