Fred Passman discusses how to minimise risks from Covid-19 exposure in the industrial workplace
By the end of September 2020, there were 33 million cases of Covid-19, and more than one million deaths, worldwide. With the U.S. President, his wife and his close aide, contracting the virus themselves in early October, Covid-19 once again occupied the headlines throughout the world. Dr. Frederick Passman, one of a few industry experts on industrial microbial ecology, discusses how people can return to work safely in the industrial setting, where social distancing could be challenging. The greatest risk of exposure to airborne viruses occurs in enclosed spaces. Passman discusses the measures that can be taken to minimise the risks, and explains how it is not as simple as following general health guidance.
