New York Times: Is the Coronavirus Getting Better at Airborne Transmission?
New York Times: Is the Coronavirus Getting Better at Airborne Transmission?. “Most researchers now agree that the coronavirus is mostly transmitted through large droplets that quickly sink to the floor and through much smaller ones, called aerosols, that can float over longer distances indoors and settle directly into the lungs, where the virus is most harmful. The new studies don’t fundamentally change that view. But the findings signal the need for better masks in some situations, and indicate that the virus is changing in ways that make it more formidable.”
