HUMIDITY LEVEL OF 40-60% - IDEAL FOR HEALTH

Rotronic Measurement Solutions News and PR from Rotronic Measurement Solutions - Published 17 July 2020 Using scientific findings as a basis, a global petition asks the World Health Organization (WHO) to prescribe a humidity level of 40-60 %RH to reduce respiratory infections.
In light of the Covid-19 crisis, Dr. Stephanie Taylor, one of the initiators of the petition and advisor on infection control at Harvard Medical School, believes it is more important than ever to listen to the latest evidence and to establish global guidelines for indoor air quality quickly and decisively with a clear recommendation on the upper and lower limits of humidity in public buildings. The measure would reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses in the air inside buildings and protect public health. This conviction is shared not only by RotronicÂ’s specialists but also by leading members of the global scientific community. The petition aims to raise global awareness of the crucial role of indoor climate quality for physical health and to demand that the WHO pushes for significant political changes.
