The dose-response model has been widely used for quantifying the risk of infection of airborne diseases like COVID-19. The model has been used in the room-average analysis of infection risk and analysis using passive scalars as a proxy for aerosol transport. However, it has not been employed for risk estimation in numerical simulations of droplet dispersion. In this work, we develop a framework for the evaluation of the probability of infection in droplet dispersion simulations using the dose…

Digital transformation of droplet/aerosol infection risk assessment realized on "Fugaku" for the fight against COVID-19
The fastest supercomputer in 2020, Fugaku, has not only achieved digital transformation of epidemiology in allowing end-to-end, detailed quantitative modeling of COVID-19 transmissions for the first


Simulation of droplet dispersion in COVID-19 type pandemics on Fugaku
A combination of discrete Lagrangian droplet model and fully compressible Navier-Stokes flow solver is employed in this study and the method is applied to analyze cases such as droplet dispersion during speech and cough under different environmental settings.
Probability of aerosol transmission of SARS-CoV-2
The study of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 suggests that aerosol transmission is an inefficient route, in particular from non or mildly symptomatic individuals.

Development of a Dose‐Response Model for SARS Coronavirus
The exponential model developed here is the sole dose‐response model for SARS‐CoV at the present and would enable us to understand the possibility for reemergence of SARS.
Airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2: The world should face the reality
Quantifying SARS-CoV-2 transmission suggests epidemic control with digital contact tracing
A mathematical model for infectiousness was developed to estimate the basic reproductive number R0 and to quantify the contribution of different transmission routes and the requirements for successful contact tracing, and the combination of two key parameters needed to reduce R0 to less than 1 was determined.
Virological assessment of hospitalized patients with COVID-2019
Detailed virological analysis of nine cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) provides proof of active replication of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in tissues of the upper respiratory tract.
Droplet expulsion from the respiratory tract.
A number of methods have been used in the past to determine the numbers and sizes of droplets expelled from the respiratory tract during various respiratory maneuvers; methods involving light scattering have yielded useful information, but the resolution available is somewhat limited.
