Now that we finally have masks for kids in schools . . .

There is something else we should be paying much more attention to, namely ventilation.

Why?

Because improper ventilation is finally getting the attention it deserves as a major risk factor for susceptibility to SARS-Co-V2 infection.

So in a commentary published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine , these experts from Imperial College London and the headteacher of a secondary school point out the obvious: “There is an urgent need for guidelines on how schools can use ventilation to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission in the classroom”.

And where should the experts turn to for tactics about improving ventilation in classrooms?

These experts claim it’s to the airline industry, which has a comparatively much lower risk of transmitting COVID-19 infections than do other closed-room settings.
