9 November 2020 - Simulation shows how cough droplets spread in tropical climate

A*STAR researchers in Singapore have developed a simulation which more accurately models the spread of droplets when a person with Covid-19 coughs in Singapore’s tropical environment. Working closely with the National Supercomputing Centre, they fed a combination of physics and mathematical equations, based on prior studies on the coronavirus, into a supercomputer to produce their simulation.
