Currently, it is unsure if COVID-19 can spread by aerosol transmission or even via air-conditioner in a confined space. Further understanding of COVID-19 transmission is needed for good infection control practices and advice to the public. Scientists believe that environmental contamination was an important factor in the disease's transmission, but its extent is unclear.

A study conducted by National Centre for Infectious Diseases found that a patient with mild symptoms could cause "extensive environmental contamination" in an isolation room such as bed rail, chair, window, floor, light switches, toilet bowl, sink, air duct.

We like to find out if the infection is airborne and how many air exchanges in hospital rooms would be optimal.

Your support is needed for such work to answer the above questions and other initiatives to keep the COVID-19 pandemic under control.

a. COVID-19 Rapid Diagnostic Test
Assessment of available test kits on the market so that the kits can be deployed to GP clinics, Polyclinics and emergency rooms widely.

b. Study on immune responses in patients with severe COVID-19 infection
Identify and treat patients who are at high risk of suffering severe complications and poor outcomes.

We need your help to get us ahead of the virus and win the race to reduce deaths.
