More effort needs to be put into stopping and preventing the spread of viruses. Mutations have clearly shown us vaccines are not the only answer.
The last of a four part blog post on airborne biology. We have provided a significant number of studies and articles demonstrating that bacteria, fungi and viruses are all airborne.
We have compiled a significant number of studies showing good hand hygiene curbs the spread of disease.
Airborne bugs are an issue in the farming community. They have tracked airborne virus in numerous studies. Below are a few studies on e coli, one of the previous studies linked to wastewater showed e coli in the air in wastewater facilities
We have a series of engineers that have been doing studies for years tracking the movement of biology and air pollution through the air and the resuspension of these particles based on human actions.
