Evaluation of SARS-CoV-2 air contamination in hospitals with Coriolis μ air sampler

The current pandemic of Covid-19 has shown the vulnerability of our healthcare systems when faced with viral infections without a known treatment Understanding the transmission behavior of SARS-CoV-2 in the air will be a crucial step to managing the current outbreak and design the appropriate prevention and control measures. In this document, we present how researchers in Imperial College have been evaluating SARS-CoV-2 surface and air contamination in a hospital during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic in London, using surface swabs and the Coriolis μ air sampler coupled with RT qPCR and viral culture.
