Reading Guide

The COVID-19 worldwide pandemic has expanded the interest in the scientific community toward the development and application of numerical tools to simulate the potential atmospheric transport of the virus SARS-CoV-2 from one person to another. Simulation tools may help in: 1) assessing and minimizing the risk of contamination; 2) design and modify indoor environments (e.g., hospitals) in order to reduce workers and patients exposure; and 3) helping decision makers in establishing science-based prevention measures (e.g., safe distances).

We present below a list of selected publications and events.
