Executive Summary :

The transmission dynamics of highly contagious respiratory diseases like COVID-19 (through coughing/sneezing) is an open problem in the epidemiological studies of such diseases. The objective of this work is to develop a DNS code for studying cough/sneeze flows by a suitable combination of the DNS codes available and to generate useful data on the flows.
