Hands, Face, Space, Ventilate
Five ways to avoid catching the virus indoors
If it’s stuffy, walk away
Dr. David Davies, technical director of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers
If you’ve got someone who’s infected in a building, and you’re bringing in plenty of outside air, you’re diluting whatever infectious material they’re giving off.
You’re reducing the risk of other people becoming infected.
Look up at the air conditioning
Split air conditioner
If there had been a good supply of outside air, very likely fewer people would have become infected – if any
One person infects 9 in China
Ask about the ‘fresh air ratio’
Prof Cath Noakes, Leeds, Environmental panel, SAGE
Having 100% outside air or close to 100% is a good thing
The more fresh air, the less you’re running the risk of recirculating the virus through the building
Get the office management to check if there’s virus in the filters
Is there someone shedding in the building?
South Korea, 11th floor, one person infects 90
Watch out for draughts
An infected person sitting by an open window or ventilation source
Dilution effect outweighs the risk
