Part 1 - Air humidification and health:

Dry air and virus survival

In any enclosed space where a lot of people spend a lot of time together, there’s an increased risk that we will become infected with a cold or flu virus.

The risk of infection from cold and flu viruses is much, much higher in dry office air.

Dry air and mucous membrane immune response

Humans are not entirely defenseless in the face of attacks from viruses and bacteria in the environment. The mucous membranes in our airways protect us from infection by their self-cleaning mechanisms and their immune response. Relative air humidity is also a factor in the effectiveness of our immune systems, however.

Part 3 - Air humidification and health:

Dry air and the spread of viruses

Depending on their size and weight, aerosols carrying a cargo of viruses and bacteria can persist for hours in room air and spread throughout the building via the air-conditioning system. The risk of infection rises proportionally to the time spent in this environment and is directly influenced by the level of room air humidity.
