A study in which the Institute of Environmental Diagnosis and Studies of Water (IDAA), the Superior Council of Scientific Investigations (CSIC) and the University Hospital are Espaseas de Mallorca has revealed that the air of the hallways of the centers Hospitables can have a higher concentration of coronavirus than the rooms of the infected people.
The results of the study, published in the Environmental Research magazine, could serve to review the ventilation systems of hospitals, improve the quality of its air and prevent health personnel infection.
The authors of the study used a new methodology to measure the presence of the Coronavirus SARS-COV-2 in the air of the hospitals, consists of placing air filters in different hospital facilities: COVID-19 patient rooms and adjacent corridors; Adjacent corridors both UCI rooms and rooms without patients Covid-19; and the outside terrace, and its subsequent quantification using the PCR technique.
The research shows that the greatest presence of the genetic material of the virus is found in the hallways adjacent to the rooms of infected patients, and not in the rooms themselves, where ventilation is more efficient. This finding allows us to conclude that there is a transfer of viruses from the rooms towards the hallways.
