In closed living and community rooms, many viruses can long retain infectious activity in air. The more stable under these conditions are the adenoviruses, the enteroviruses and the Newcastles disease virus, but the parainfluenza viruses and respiratory-syncytial virus are inactivated sufficiently rapidly. The relative humidity has a significant effect on the degree of virus inactivation in the air.
