Abstract: Much controversy surrounds the role that airborne contamination routes play in the spread of COVID-19, due to contrasting schools of thought regarding how COVID-19 spreads. It is commonly believed that direct forms of transmission (in-person contact) are primarily responsible for contamination by individuals. However, there are also compelling arguments made in favor of less direct forms of transmission, namely through the airborne route. As the potency of air routes as a contamination pathway has yet to been established, there are inadequate measures undertaken to combat the spread of COVID-19 through this infection route. Therefore, this research examines the viability of airborne pathways as a contamination route through the use of simulation software FaTIMA, where it is suggested that COVID-19 can be spread through the air space medium. Strategies to counter this transmission mode are suggested to strengthen efforts in the fight against COVID-19.
