Characterization of the public transit air microbiome and resistome reveals geographical specificity
Background The public transit is a built environment with high occupant density across the globe, and identifying factors shaping public transit air microbiomes will help design strategies to minimize the transmission of ...
The subway microbiome: Seasonal dynamics and direct comparison of air and surface bacterial communities
Background Mass transit environments, such as subways, are uniquely important for transmission of microbes among humans and built environments, and for their ability to spread pathogens and impact large numbers of people. ...
Dispersion of SARS-CoV-2 in air surrounding COVID-19-infected individuals with mild symptoms
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the transmission modes of SARS-CoV-2—particularly the role of aerosol transmission—have been much debated. Accumulating evidence suggests that SARS-CoV-2 can be transmitted by aerosols, ...
Characterization of the chemical, biological and radiological environment in the Arctic World Archive
This report describes the characterization of the chemical, biological and radiological environment in a decommissioned coal mine (Mine 3) on Svalbard, where the Artic World Archive (AWA), established by Piql and Store ...
SARS-CoV-2 in the Air Surrounding Patients during Nebulizer Therapy
Nebulizer therapy is commonly used for patients with obstructive pulmonary disease or acute pulmonary infections with signs of obstruction. It is considered a “potential aerosol-generating procedure,” and the risk of disease ...
