Second NCOH webinar about aerosols

Aerosols are hot. What makes these tiny droplets so complex?

Airborne transmission is defined as the spread of an infectious agent through the dissemination of droplet nuclei (aerosols) that remain infectious while suspended in the air. They can spread over long distances and remain infectious for extended periods of time.

Scientists have been actively discussing whether SARS-CoV-2 may also spread through aerosols in the absence of aerosol generating procedures, particularly in indoor settings with poor ventilation, for example during certain medical procedures that generate aerosols.

Hence, the topic of the next NCOH-webinar was easy to come up with. It will be about aerosols, and particularly about the complexity in research.

Time & date: Thursday 3 September, 15:00 – 16:00 h.

Registration: You can register here.

Lidwien Smit of Utrecht University and Sander Herfst of Erasmus MC will be presenting their work on this subject. Marc Bonten will be the moderator of this webinar.
