Through the UK Health Security Agency we have worked with academic experts and businesses, to explore the most suitable air cleaning technologies to be used in enclosed spaces and further commissioned research projects, studying their effectiveness at reducing transmission rates of airborne microbes, including those for COVID-19.

As part of managing these important studies officials continue to have discussions across government and with relevant stakeholders for which we will publish results in due course.
