Wide-ranging Q&A. Lots of links and concrete advice.
Wide-ranging Q&A. Lots of links and concrete advice.(LH) My opinion is that this person's summary of this article https://www.wired.com/story/they-say-coronavirus-isnt-airborne-but-its-definitely-borne-by-air/ is misleading. I don't think the article suggests that "New research shows that it is actually airborne by some scientists - depending on who you ask". I think the article just explains why making a black and white distinction between airborne and not is a bit misleading because it's more complicated than that. Most of the expert advice is still that it is unlikely to be airborne in the "it's in the air for a long time and breathing infected air is a significant portion of how it is spread" sense. It also makes some strong claims like fabric masks can make things worse and people can get reinfected without backing that up or explaining the nuances there. Mar 14
