UNIC Research Suggests Repeated Coughing Seriously Degrades Face Mask Efficiency

University of Nicosia researchers Dbouk and Drikakis return with more important input in reviewing social distancing guidelines; small droplets of saliva can emerge from a face mask, with some droplets then traveling as far as 1 metre.

UNIC Research Suggests Saliva Droplets Can Travel More Than Two Metres In Light Winds

According to a University of Nicosia paper published in Physics of Fluids, a mild cough occurring in low wind speeds of 4-15 km/h can propel saliva droplets for up to 6 metres. Important input in reviewing social distancing guidelines in windy conditions.

The University of Nicosia Establishes Defence and Security Research Institute

The new institute will undertake research and training activities on defence and security in collaboration with partners in government; industry; and other academic and research centres nationally and internationally.
