How to (Literally) Drive the Coronavirus Away
What’s the transmission risk inside a car? An airflow study offers some insight for passengers and drivers alike. In a new study, Varghese Mathai (PhD alumnus from POF group) and three colleagues at Brown University — Asimanshu Das, Jeffrey Bailey and Kenneth Breuer — used computer simulations to map how virus-laden airborne particles might flow through the inside of a car. Their results, published in early January in Science Advances, suggest that opening certain windows can create air currents that could help keep both riders and drivers safe from infectious diseases like Covid-19.
