Royal Society Publishing has recently published a special issue of Interface Focus entitled Airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2.
This issue brings together a collection of papers that highlight the importance and role of aerosol transmission for the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It also shows how developments in this area have led to insights into the transmission and infection risks, public health responses, and related societal and economic impacts.
"Future SARS-COV-2/COVID-19 research will extend beyond the realm of aerosol transmission and infection control - to include rapid pathways for the development, trialling and licensing of vaccines, monoclonal antibodies and antivirals - as well as ways to increase their uptake by the public."
- Dr Julian Tang, organiser of the issue
