As we are approaching winter, the Covid-19 pandemic is spreading again. To prevent the spread of virus, understanding how it is transmitted via air currents during conversation is essential. Non-pharmaceutical measures such as wearing masks and social distancing are as important as medical treatments. Prof. Howard Stone recently conducted a study on pathogen transmission in speech. Prof. Makoto TSUBOKURA is researching droplet propagations and the effects of wearing masks by computer simulation . These two experts will explain their results to the general public, followed by a discussion and Q&A.
