IDAEA-CSIC develops a manual on how classrooms should be ventilated to reduce contagion risk of COVID-19

10 November 2020

Researchers from the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (IDAEA-CSIC) Maria Cruz Minguillón and Xavier Querol, together with technicians from the Asociación Mesura have developed a handbook with guidelines on how to use ventilation to reduce the contagion risk by COVID-19.

The document establishes the recommendations for effective ventilation and air filtration
according to the room volume, the number and age of people inside, and the type of activity. It also provides the tools to determine if ventilation conditions achieved are adequate.
