Covid-19 tool: risks in different situations

This interesting and useful interactive graphic tool brings to life, visually, different levels of Covid19 risks arising with varying:

  • transmission routes
  • activities, e.g. singing vs. talking vs. loud talking
  • room size / outdoor location
  • distance from infected person
  • ventilation
  • physical contact
  • surface type
  • protections used by infected & uninfected people: mask and type, visor, perspex screen; and also the impact on infection risks of respiratory hygiene, surface cleaning, hand hygiene & gloves.

I've posted about this on LinkedIn but as the authors kindly provided the embed code, I'm posting the tool here too.
