    Human travel plays a key role in the spread of many infectious diseases. Global air traffic facilitates the quick movement of pathogens while mass transport can spread them locally. Transport hubs are relevant for disease transmission for many reasons: high contact rates, high crowd density in enclosed environment, sharing of communal spaces and high number of frequently touched surfaces. The aim of the PANDHUB project is to improve preparedness for pandemics and high threat pathogens in transport hubs. In the first phase the points or sites within a traffic hub environment where the risk for microbial transmission is at least periodically increased will be identified.
