So a Sneeze Can Travel up to 27-feet

And a cough between 6-19 feet, and we are told not to wear masks and stand 6-feet apart. Right. 🤦‍♀️

Just doing what they can to slow the panic and slow the transmission

If they had a clue

Panic is the better option

Masks only work if worn by the person who is sick. And then only if they keep them in place when the cough or sneeze. Gloves only work if the person wearing them NEVER touches their face while wearing them. Once removes, you have to wash your hands before you touch your face. Also, quarantine only works if everyone doesn't bring the entire family to Walmart every couple of days. Geeze people, how can we miss ya if you won't go away?

How do you know who is sick, if 25% of those infected have no symptoms, and are contagious? Also, the evidence is mounting that just speaking and breathing is enough to catch it from an infected person, with symptoms or no symptoms. @KittenfromHell

@Carissimi That's life. You take your chances.
Long before this strain of corona came about, people where walking around with everything from the common cold to infectious bronchitis. Why weren't people freaking out then? Because this time, it was handled ineptly by the people in charge.

I guess the concern is how far can the virus travel in a cough or sneeze... 🤔
Carissimi · 61-69, F
It travels in the droplets, so up to 19-feet and 27-feet, respectively. Of course, if you put your hand over your mouth, or sneeze into a tissue then it doesn’t travel like that, but from my experience, last Christmas, when everyone was coughing, no one put their hands over their mouths. Three days later, I had the flu. @MrAboo

@Carissimi that’s a very good point
