DW News published this video item, entitled “Latest research: How to prevent coronavirus infections | COVID-19 Special” – below is their description.
How do we get infected with the coronavirus? Japanese researchers have used a supercomputer to simulate how viral particles move. The simulation makes the invisible threat visible and could help people evaluate risk of infection. Their findings show how far even the smallest droplets can spread and demonstrate how masks, social distancing and humidity impact the spread of COVID-19. Their research suggests that the use of humidifiers may help limit infections indoors during times when regular ventilation isn’t possible.DW News YouTube Channel
