S&T Launches Tool to Predict Decay of Airborne Coronavirus

S&T Public Affairs, 202-254-2385

- The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) added a new calculator to their online tools today to estimate the natural decay of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) in the air under various environmental conditions. Using the results of ongoing research being conducted at S&T's National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center (NBACC) in Maryland, the tool is designed to assist response efforts and minimize person-to-person transmission by analyzing environmental factors that may impact the ability of the virus to spread.

Bryan, DHS Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Under Secretary for Science & Technology. "The easily accessible tool allows officials, the medical community, and individuals to make more informed decisions to protect their own health and well-being."

S&T research that uses simulated saliva finds survival of the virus depends greatly on its environmental conditions, with the virus most stable indoors and least stable in the presence of sunlight. Two studies by S&T researchers have been featured in the Oxford Academic Journal of Infectious Diseases, with the most rec
