Model Designed To Predict Cellular Drug Targets Against COVID-19

Schematic representation of the integrated host-virus metabolic modelling approach used in the article. The biomass composition of SARS-CoV-2 is estimated based on genomic and structural informations and then embedded in the metabolic network model of the host cell. This model is then used to predict the metabolic fluxes supporting virus production and effects of perturbations. Credit: University of Warwick

Air Purifiers in Confined Spaces May Actually Increase the Spread of Airborne Viruses

News

The positions of air inlets and outlets in confined spaces, such as elevators, greatly affect airborne virus transmission. Researchers have shown that air purifiers may actually increase the spread. They use ultraviolet radiation to kill viruses and other microbes, but they also circulate air, sucking it in and exhausting cleaned air. This adds to overall circulation.
