Algorithm to estimate Covid-19 infections risks by aerosol transmission in indoor environments

September 22, 2020

Researchers of the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry and the Cyprus Institute in Nicosia, Cyprus develop a simple spreadsheet algorithm to estimate Covid-19 infections risks from aerosol transmission in indoor environments. It calculates the risk of transmission with one highly infectious person in the room.
