Corona Catcher Challenge
COVID-19 is transmitted through respiratory droplets, e.g. air droplets. The virus’ transmission is higher in humid air. This is a problem specifically in closed rooms when those infected cough or sneeze. If we can reduce humidity we can reduce transmissions. If we can catch the infected droplets we will lower the spread of the virus.
Corona Guard Challenge
Recommended behaviors such as hand washing and of course avoiding contact with positives to the virus are the recommended practices to lower the chances of airborne transmission of COVID-19.However, these practices are not enough when a household member becomes positive or is treated at home. Research from around the world shows that in these cases members of the household become positive.
