A SARS-CoV-2 aerosol simulation in a classroom in which a window in the back of the room and a door in the front of the room are left open

Simulations, HPC and technology — the new weapon against the coronavirus

Along with vaccines and drugs, ventilation techniques are becoming a powerful weapon against the coronavirus. These devices clean the air of indoor spaces, such as classrooms, disposing of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. However, to construct and install fitting devices, researchers must first learn, how viable the virus is and how air cleaning systems can get rid of it in suitable time — before infection occurs. Recently, scientists at NCSA in Bulgaria performed simulations to examine these factors and laid the groundwork for anti-virus ventilation systems for classroom and other populated indoor locations.

Evaluating the lifetime of expiratory COVID droplets

The COVID-DROPLETS project, led by Dr Gaetano Sardina from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, in collaboration with Dr Francesco Picano from University of Padua in Italy, is investigating the lifetime of expiratory droplets released by individuals infected with SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus strain causing COVID-19). Surprisingly, the current recommendations to hinder the transmission of respiratory infectious diseases are based on a simple model developed 90 years ago.
