If a person sharing a home with others is infected with a virus, how can I prevent it from spreading to other members of the household? Existing evidence strongly suggests that viral infectious diseases can be transmitted via an airborne route across distances in indoor environments. Accordingly, sharing indoor space in the presence of infected individuals poses a major risk in the transmission of the disease. This webinar will present several low-cost, easy-to-implement control strategies to potentially mitigate the airborne transmission of infectious aerosols in a single-family house.
1. Describe characteristics of an isolation zone in terms of pressure differences.
2. Describe low-cost interventions to create a difference in pressure between an isolation zone and a main zone.
3. Describe how airborne infectious disease particles are simulated.
4. Be able to implement effective control strategies using easily accessible and low-cost materials, and simple processes.
