Hidden hazards of SARS-CoV-2 transmission in hospitals
Despite their considerable prevalence, dynamics of hospital-associated COVID-19 are still not well understood. The research team assessed the nature and extent of air- and surface-borne SARS-CoV-2 contamination in hospitals to identify hazards of viral dispersal and enable more precise targeting of infection prevention and control.

There are a wide range of systems available on the market that show differing levels of efficacy in capturing airborne viruses and bacteria. But which class of HEPA filters – H13 vs H14 filtration – have a higher long-term efficacy?
In this post, we provide an overview of why air filtration is an important measure to mitigate the risk of airborne contamination and airborne viral transmission, how HEPA filters can reduce this risk, and which class - H13 vs H14 filtration – has shown the highest overall efficacy in achieving this.
Here we explore the benefits of adopting air filtration and purification systems in school classrooms, alongside recommended measures such as social distancing, hand washing and face mask use. Effective air filtration can help provide protection against Covid-19 and improve indoor air quality more broadly.
