FCE Research Supported by RGC Collaborative Research Fund

The Covid-19 pandemic has magnified the potential threat of airborne transmission of viruses everywhere, particularly within hospitals. Even though guidance for airborne precautions has been provided to healthcare workers taking care of patients with known or suspected viral infections, the risk of in-hospital airborne transmission remains if patients with unidentified airborne infection of novel virus or asymptomatic infection of known airborne diseases are not handled correctly in general human-occupied areas (GHOAs) (i.e. general inpatient wards, outpatient clinics, accident and emergency (A&E) rooms, washrooms etc.)
