The Center for Disease Control in Canada has just recently discovered that Coronavirus is primarily transmitted in the form of a vapor, not droplets..

[c=#BF6900]
It was also discovered that invisible vapor leaving the nose or mouth from normal breathing will attach itself to a larger water droplet and will fall to the floor within 6 feet of that person breathing. This occurs because of the weight of the water droplet itself.

But when vaporized Coronavirus does not attach itself to a larger droplet, it stays airborne like cigarette smoke lingering in the air. Eventually over time and just like soot contaminants contained in tobacco smoke, Coronavirus will fall to the floor as well. This is because virus like soot, is heavier than air.

This is why you can contract Covid-19 without being anywhere near people. But if you walk through the air space of someone who has tested positive even several minutes after that person has left the room, you can still breath-in the virus because that infected person has contaminated the air all around themselves.

An empty elevator does not mean the air inside is not contaminated with airborne virus.[/c]

so.... stay home, keep you distance... wear a mask just in case you are unwittingly infectuous... minimize exposure...


do you have a reliable source for this btw?

Okay, I'll take a look again later on. I never thought to record the link because I had to dig around to find it in the first place. It never exactly jumped out at me.[/c]

Research in wuhan China back in June and recently in Hong Kong suggest this also

[@324070,Ynotisay] semantics 🤷‍♂️, aerosols are airborne particles, particles of anything. Have you ever seen dust particles hanging in the air in a sunbeam coming through a window? Isnt steam from a kettle, smoke from a cigarette - airborne, are they vapour or aerosols? It's not difficult to consider a volume of relatively undisturbed, unchanged air around a contagious individual who's talking or merely breathing becoming saturated relatively quickly, ill fitting surgical mask/face shield or not.

You are absolutely correct in what your post has stated here. [/c]

Yeah, it's aerosolized. It's the reason why, in spite of masks and distances, it started resurging the moment people went back to closed environments like offices and schools.

so all that mask nonsense if for naught? Only N 95s or better can cope with vapor particle sizes

[@113373,TexChik] Masks still reduce it somehow (we haven't experienced another Bergamo-scale outbreak ever since) but yeah, I'd get N95s or better if you wanted to play safe(r). Even because at least over here they're sold at less than €1.00/each atm
