The continuous growth of global travel facilitates the quick and sometimes uncontrollable spread of naturally, or intentionally released, person-to-person transmissible pathogens around the world. Airports contribute to the potential spread of disease owing to the high number of passengers from across the world coming together in enclosed spaces, with high contact rates and several hand touch surfaces. Principal Scientist at the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, Ilpo Kulmala, provides an overview of the EU-funded PANDHUB project, which aims to minimise the transmission of infectious diseases in transport hubs.
