Corona Aerosols

Corona spreads as an aerosol via the air we breathe. In times of the corona pandemic, we provided information about the behavior of aerosols and the various protective components. The aim of the communication activities was to raise awareness of different measures for "dealing with aerosols" among the broadest possible sections of the population and thus improve the use of measures to protect against infection by gas-borne viruses. Among other things, we addressed the following topics in the various contributions:

  • The effectiveness of different masks - FFP2 as a "compromise"
  • The correct way to wear masks
  • Correct ventilation
  • The effectiveness of indoor air filters in real-life applications
