Ventilation Plays Critical Role in Reducing Covid-19 Transmission

Published: 13/05/2020

Vent-Axia has welcomed the Government’s Covid-19 press briefing on 29 April 2020 which cited ventilation as being critical in the fight against the virus. At the briefing Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, said “There is a definite truism across all of the science literature, that ventilation is a most critical part of reducing transmission from respiratory viruses.” Vent-Axia is committed to improving indoor air quality (IAQ) and public health and, as the leading British ventilation manufacturer, has been delighted to help in the national response against Covid-19. The company has already supplied ventilation to a wide-range of essential projects including the NHS Nightingale Hospital in London, Kent & Canterbury NHS Trust’s Covid-19 wards; and field hospitals at Bangor University and Deeside Leisure Centre.

The Government’s briefing has added further weight to a raft of global scientific evidence which indicates aerosol transmission of Covid-19, thus making it more risky to be inside than outside a building. The reason for this increased risk is a lack of airflow. It's therefore vital to dilute the virus in the air inside through effective ventilation and increased airflow both in homes and buildings.
