Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East – Climate and Atmosphere Research Centre (EMME – CARE)
Welcome to EMME-CARE
Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East – Climate and Atmosphere Research Centre
EMME-CARE has established a new research centre as part of the CyI, CARE-C, and thereby linking Environmental sciences (atmospheric composition and climate) with public health, policy development, economic sectors, education and innovation to address societal challenges.
Infected individual coughs, sneezes, or exhales (when speaking) produce a large quantity of virus-laden droplets and aerosols that can remain in the air for several hours. Every new scientific paper on airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 brings more evidence on the importance of this mechanism in the transmission of the COVID-19 diseases.
