Infection prevention: clean air indoors as well

Dear Sir or Madam,

Open all windows – this way, we have to protect ourselves from the coronavirus in indoor locations where people spend time together. This is totally fine in warmer months, but the cold becomes an ordeal for many during winter. A protective canopy is able to help here since it locally cleans air but does not cool down the entire room. Learn more in our current interview.

Stay healthy!

They help patients connect better with doctors and better understand their own disease. Our Topic of the Month looks at why this is so important and what the digital services can do.

Covid-19: protective canopy prevents infection

The risk of infection with SARS-CoV-2 is particularly high indoors. This is because, in addition to smear and droplet infection, infection via aerosols that accumulate and spread in the air is also possible there. Sufficient air exchange or air purification help to prevent this. The protective canopy developed by Fraunhofer IBP also follows such an approach.
