SARS-CoV-2 coronaviruses (i.e., COVID-19 virus) transmit through the aerosol and can survive on object surfaces for up to 7 days. Inhalation of SARS-CoV-2 coronaviruses-contaminated air or touching of virus-contaminated material surface can lead to infections. This project aims to:

  • Evaluate the removal efficiency of coronaviruses and other viruses in the aerosol by various air disinfection technologies
  • Determine the removal efficiency of coronaviruses and other viruses on different material surface by surface disinfection technologies.
