No mouth mask on? That’s how fast the virus spreads in a …

Japanese researchers at Riken and the University of Kobe have simulated the spread of virus particles in the air using a supercomputer. They want to use this to demonstrate how fast and how far the virus can spread if a mouth and nose mask is not used. “For many, wearing a mouth mask is annoying and an inconvenience and they don’t see the point of it. That’s because spreading a virus is something that happens invisibly. By visualizing it, we hope that people will think a little further and see the usefulness of the measures, ”says Professor Makoto Tsubokura, leader of the research team.

Earlier this week, Ghent University researcher Bart Mesuere showed with the animation below how the virus spread throughout the country again in a few weeks.
