Airborne Microecology

Airborne microbes.

Airborne microecology is a microbial ecosystem that is closely related to other environmental biospheres, and directly affects the human respiratory system and skin. The status of microbes in the air and human health are closely related. With the extensive application of DNA sequencing and metagenomics in the study of microbial diversity, the community structure of airborne microbes has been gradually recognized. The types and quantities of microbes in the air vary with environmental conditions such as region, altitude, season, climate, etc.

The air has a strong transmission capacity. Once pathogens enter the human body, it may turn the air into a transmission medium and cause the epidemic of infectious diseases. The Noval Coronavirus is mainly spread by airborne droplets at close range. Therefore, conducting airborne microbial testing to determine the nature and degree of air pollution caused by bacteria or viruses is of great significance for the prevention and control of infectious diseases as well as environmental hygienic supervision.
