Covid-19 and the role of aerosol particles

In the AAF working committee experts in the field of Chemistry, Aerosol Physics and Engineering Sciences deal with questions on the origin, the spreading, the composition, and the impact of particulate matter in the environment. Many aspects of these works do also matter in the current pandemic. In a position paper the AAF analyses the aerosole transmission pathway in the corona pandemic more closely. The experts take a look at countermeasures and explain how masks, airing, air cleaning and overhead exhaust systems can reduce the aerosole load and thereby thr virus transmission.
