Ventilation is more important than hand washing! Featured
Monitor and improve air quality
to avoid aerosol infections
Although air quality should not only play an important role in times of acute threats from highly infectious viruses, special attention is paid to this.
According to current knowledge, a significant proportion of Corona infections are due to aerosols, small liquid droplets. We release these microparticles into the environment as we breathe, laugh, talk and of course when coughing. Due to their low weight, they can remain in the air for long periods and contain potentially infectious viruses. A virologist, Professor Christian Drosten, assumes that as many infections are caused by aerosols as by drop contamination.
Therefore, regular and intensive ventilation is an important component in the control of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. With W&T Web Thermometers for VOC and CO 2 solutions, you record and monitor indoor air quality and receive alarm messages when the air quality falls below a critical value. This way you will be notified if there is a need to ventilate the room.

Not only high CO2 content in the ambient air, but also high VOC values may be a sign of poorly ventilated spaces.
Professor Christian Drosten, director of the Institute of Virology at the Charité in Berlin, describes his views on virus transmission through aerosols.
