Indoor air quality has been directly related to the wellbeing, comfort, and health of indoor building occupants. Indoor environments represent a mix of air contaminants and indoor activities, inadequate ventilation, temperature, and humidity can increase concentrations of some pollutants. In developing countries, humans spend 80–90% of their routine time indoors, and the quality of the air they breathe can have a direct impact on overall health and work efficiency.
Recently, indoor air quality has reemerged as a significant health issue as scientific evidence shows that airborne transmission is one of the key routes by which SARS-CoV-2 is spread. Controlling concentrations of indoor respiratory aerosols to reduce airborne transmission of infectious agents becomes critical. A healthy indoor environment with a specific design criterion for buildings with consideration to include improved ventilation and selection of materials for sustainability should be contemplated.
This Special Issue aims to showcase the variety and relevance of recent advances and developments in the field of indoor air quality and health.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to the following: indoor air quality, air pollutants, respiratory health, cardiovascular health, SARS-CoV-2, infectious diseases, and intervention studies.
