COVID-19: Airborne Transmission and Mitigation from a Physicist Perspective
Eugene M. Chudnovsky
CUNY Graduate School and Lehman College
Physical properties of droplets containing COVID-19 virus and its airborne transmission in the aerosol form will be discussed with the focus on the effects of location and intensity of spreaders, airflow, humidity, exposure time and other factors. Results of computer modeling of the epidemic mitigated by measures that reduce the spread of the infection will be presented. The speaker will share his thoughts on the danger of emerging novel viruses.
