Clearing the Air on COVID-19

Do you remember at the start of COVID-19 pandemic? The big push to keep us safe involved social distancing and hand washing. But there was very little, if any, talk about the airborne spread of the virus, even from organisations like the World Health Organisation (WHO).

QUT Distinguished Professor Lidia Morawska was one of the first people in the world to ring the alarm bells last year about the airborne transmission of COVID. Despite a lot of pushback, she was able to make her case and now has one of the most cited papers there is on the airborne transmission of COVID.

Now, she’s taking a different fight. In this episode, Lidia talks about why we need to change the way how we circulate air in the buildings where we work and in our homes.
