A group of scientists in Chile created a device that measures carbon dioxide (CO2) to assess and warn of the risk of contagion of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in enclosed spaces.

"An important factor in the transmission of the virus is through the air, through what are called aerosols, which are very tiny (small) particles of water, but which can float in the air for long distances," Ricardo Finger, a researcher at the Center of Excellence in Astrophysics and Related Technologies (CATA) of the University of Chile and one of the creators of the prototype, explained to Xinhua.
