Microbial air monitoring facilitates disease surveillance and outbreak response

Air monitoring is one of the essential pillars of disease surveillance and management. Routine air sampling in crowded indoor spaces – such as airports, hospitals, schools, malls, and offices – serves as an early warning mechanism, not just for SARS-CoV-2, but also other airborne pathogens. Air monitoring provides useful information about viral prevalence in a population and can be used as an alternative screening tool when mass diagnostic testing is not feasible. Early identification of pathogens and variants of concern allows for timely implementation of mitigation strategies and informs vaccine development.

Learn about the innovative solutions designed for effective air monitoring and see how public health systems around the world have implemented these approaches to monitor COVID-19, as well as other human and animal disease outbreaks.
