1. Characteristics of two possible airborne infection transmission routes—intra-building transmission and cross-building transmission—were investigated in high-rise residential environments.
2. Infection risks and their factors associated with the two transmission routes were assessed.
3. A reliable computational fluid dynamics model was developed for predicting the air movement and pollutant dispersion in high-rise residential environments.
