APRIL special meeting on COVID-19

Previous meetings covered the way the lockdown and changes in behaviour due to Covid 19 have reduced air pollution. At this meeting two speakers illustrated how our understanding of air pollution and dispersion can be applied to infection routes and transmission of the virus, and on links between air pollution and Covid infection.

  1. Professor Paul Linden from Cambridge will talk about infection routes via droplets, aerosols and surfaces; and how these are being investigated in the TRACK project (Transport Risk Assessment for Covid Knowledge)
  1. Professor Jonathan Grigg from Queen Mary University will discuss his ongoing laboratory studies looking at whether Marylebone Road particulate matter (PM) air pollution increases SARS-CoV-2 infection of lung cells
