Covid-19, the disease cause by SARS-CoV-2 virus is rapidly spreading with new infection growth in the south that is now spreading north. Why didn’t Covid-19 diminish in the summer as did the 1918 Influenza pandemic? Why did Covid-19 spread rapidly in the north during the early spring, while the south was relatively untouched? And why did a summer surge of Covid-19 occur in the south, and is now traveling northward?
A primary reason is insufficient fresh air ventilation in our homes, businesses, schools and public gathering places. In the early spring, northern states with accelerated outbreaks were still cold with residents largely indoors while homes and buildings in southern states were open to the outside. As summer heat in June forced southern state residents into air conditioned buildings, northern state residents were enjoying open windows and outdoor activities. Now, summer heat and humidity is moving north, and along with it, an infection surge as northern state residents head indoors for cooler conditions.
Our webinar discusses the transmission characteristics of Covid-19 based on an Infection Parameter (IP) that is defined by a social distance index and a disease transmission efficiency parameter. Infection parameter greater than 2.7 results in accelerated growth of Covid-19 and IP levels below 2.7 result in decay of the disease. We discuss how much social distancing relative to disease transmission efficiency levels is required to reach an IP level that causes the decay of Covid-19.
Build Equinox guidelines for controlling Covid-19 spread are discussed. These guidelines are based on science and practical:
