Abstract – People spend much of their lives indoors,
so air quality is particularly important to their health,
ability to work, and well-being. The COVID -19
pandemic has heightened people's awareness of the
importance of maintaining high indoor air quality.
Such an emergency has underscored the need for
adequate heating, ventilation and air conditioning
systems that can provide a good indoor air quality,
especially ventilation systems as important players in
preventing and reducing the risk of airborne
infections. In this paper, we review natural and
mechanical ventilation and their roles in dealing with
coronavirus, focusing on key factors for healthy indoor
air. Two pillars are critical for ventilation: increased
air exchange rate and air filtration in ventilation
Keywords – ventilation, HVAC systems, indoor air
quality, filtration, pandemic.
