Air Quality & COVID-19

The European Public Health Alliance has warned that people living in polluted cities are more at risk from COVID-19, because air pollution can cause asthma, high blood pressure and diabetes. COVID-19 has more serious consequences on patients with pre-existing health issues that are in many cases caused by air pollution.

Whilst buildings themselves cannot solve the COVID-19 pandemic, it cannot be denied that they will play a crucial role in minimising viral transmission.

There are straightforward steps that can be taken to reduce the potential for airborne transmission of COVID-19 and the focus of this material is on those measures. The layout and design of a building, as well as occupancy and type of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, can all impact potential airborne spread of the virus.

CO2 & Humidity

Factors such as high CO2 levels contribute to a stuffy atmosphere causing employees to feel tired, lethargic and unmotivated to be productive. In many work environments, CO2 levels are above 1000 and are often the result of poor ventilation and/or circulation within the space.

Humidity also plays a huge role in workplace comfort and can have a big impact on productivity and motivation. If humidity levels are too low, employees many start to feel irritation in their skin, eyes and throat but if too high, the space could promote the growth of unsightly and unhygienic mould, bacteria and dust mites.
