We have collated some of the most helpful resources to help improve public understanding of airborne transmission, here and on our YouTube Channel. If you have a suggestion for further items to include, please contact us.
Our previous live with Professor Jose Jimenez is an excellent, in depth introduction to the topic, and he has very kindly shared his slides, FAQs and Covid Estimator for anyone to view. See also the Portable Air Cleaner Calculator for Schools, developed by Professor Jimenez, his colleague Dr Shelly Miller, and Joseph Allen, Associate Professor of Exposure Assessment Science Environmental Health at Harvard School of Public Health,

Dr Eilir Hughes is a GP and founder of the #FreshAirNHS campaign, which calls for the recognition of airborne transmission and the provision of adequate PPE to guard all clinical staff against it – not just those in ICU. Parents United is grateful for his inspiration in creating #FreshAirSchools.
Our #FreshAirSchools video – share to help us call for appropriate mitigation against airborne transmission in schools.
Professor Joseph Allen, describes exactly how we feel about aerosol transmission right here. Please do take a look at Schools for Health – it is an excellent resource.
An animation of the effect of layered mitigations on level of transmission.
This video demonstrates the importance of social distancing in aerosol transmission, as expelled aerosols are diluted and rise like smoke.
NHS explanation of airborne transmission and the need for ventiliation.
The inimitable Bill Nye explaining masks AND making us laugh.
Using CO2 meters to determine air quality – from Professor Joseph Allen.

Slow motion fun with the Slo Mo Guys – and Dr Anthony Fauci:
A simple animation to explain aerosol transmission, from the University of Colorado, Boulder.
A good explanation on the science of masks, and engaging for children too.
Super-spreader events provide unfortunate evidence of airborne transmission. They show that large numbers of people can become infected by an index case in an airborne environment, not just those who are in close contact with the infected individual.
Double masking has been found to be as effective as an N95 mask – simple and effective.
Improve the fit of your surgical mask.
