In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to experts, the coronavirus can linger in poorly ventilated environments for hours and remains transmissible. Therefore, in inadequately ventilated spaces, breathing the air of an infected person can release aerosols containing the coronavirus.

Air ventilation is one of the essential measures to prevent the transmission of the virus. Given that the coronavirus can spread through sneezing, coughing, and even talking by an infected individual into the surrounding environment, and on the other hand, the concentration of viruses in enclosed spaces can significantly increase, the optimal use of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems in buildings plays a crucial role in controlling the pandemic and protecting the building occupants from disease transmission.

Therefore, regular and proper ventilation reduces the risk of contracting the coronavirus, and ensuring fresh air supply or increasing the amount of fresh air is a valuable measure in controlling infection and preventing the transmission of the coronavirus. It should be noted that HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) alone may not cover all aspects of disease control; however, it does have an impact on the dispersion of infectious particles within a building’s space.

In DR BOOSHEHRI DMFR CENTER, a suitable ventilation system has been installed for the well-being of our esteemed patients, aiming to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
