The coronavirus particles were found in the ventilation system at Uppsala University Hospital, including on the top floor of the building, far away from Covid-19 wards, a study shows.

During the pandemic, droplet transmission has been considered the most significant transmission route for Covid-19.

The findings suggest airborne infection may be a greater risk than previously thought, Erik Salaneck, researcher and infectious disease doctor at the University Hospital tells Swedish Radio.
