The PROTECT COVID-19 National Core Study is pleased to invite you to a free online seminar on ‘Understanding and controlling COVID-19 virus transmission risk on public transport’ at 9.30-11.00am on Friday 1 October.

Bringing together findings from a number of ongoing research studies, the seminar aims to give those involved in the operation of public transport services, as well as relevant government policymakers and other researchers, a useful understanding of relevant transmission risk factors and what works to address them.

Speakers and presentations:

  • Professor Martie Van-Tongeren, Professor of Occupational and Environmental Health, University of Manchester – Perceptions of COVID-19 transmission risk and effectiveness of mitigation on public transport
  • Professor Cath Noakes, Professor of Environmental Engineering for Buildings, University of Leeds – Understanding the factors that influence COVID-19 transmission mechanisms on public transport
  • Dr Taku Fujiyama, Associate Professor of Transport Studies, University College London – Understanding the risks of virus transmission on London’s public transport vehicles

 

This is the first in a series of free evidence seminars on understanding and controlling the risk of COVID-19 virus transmission in specific sectors, hosted by the PROTECT COVID-19 National Core Study on transmission and environment.
