Live Session from ASHRAE Virtual Conference

Effects of Building Ventilation on SARS CoV 2 Transmission, a Preliminary Study by Yuguo Li

The once-in-a-century Covid-19 pandemics continues to spread. Implementing an appropriate level of intervention has not been easy, as the relative importance of different transmission routes is unknown. One important question related to HVAC is whether the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 can be transmitted by the airborne route.

Interested in more COVID-19 related presentations offered at the 2020 Virtual Conference? Registration is still open with access to on-demand recordings of all live sessions as well as 80+ on-demand sessions are available through December 2021 for a low price!
