TRIBUNJOGJA.COM – The number of new cases of Covid-19 in the country continues to decline. However, it should be noted that there will be a third wave.
Discipline of health protocols is the key word to suppress transmission, especially in wearing masks.
Well, some time ago, the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes Covid-19 was widely discussed, because it can be transmitted through airborne or air.
A recent study found that the SARS-CoV-2 virus thrives better when it is airborne.
That raises concerns that loose-fitting masks provide only “simple controls” against infection.
Study: Corona virus thrives in the air
17, 2021, a study led by the University of Maryland School of Public Health, reports that the virus has moved toward “more efficient aerosol generation”.
Researchers say this means that health measures will be needed to protect those working in public and indoors, until vaccination rates reach “very high.”
In addition to vaccines, there is a need for increased ventilation, increased filtration, UV air sanitation, and tighter masks.
The study was published on September 14, 2021, in the peer-reviewed medical journal Clinical Infectious Diseases.
