Where do you get your virus knowledge from.

Probably trump.

^^^ This needs repeating. If you're out and about wear a mask. It's not about you, it's about everyone else you may come into contact with while you're out.

 

Personally, I don't know how I would live with myself if I should discover in the future that I was responsible for unknowingly giving someone the coronavirus... isn't it better to err on the side of caution?

Exactly. If you care one bit about your family, friends and the general public you wear a mask. It costs you nothing and it might save lives.

If, by this stage, you're not wearing one you are without a doubt a complete **** - simple as that.

There's a huge difference between droplets and viral particles. Do try to educate yourself before posting such egg-on-face posts and you'll save yourself some embarrassment:

 

'239 Experts With One Big Claim: The Coronavirus Is Airborne'

 

"The W.H.O. has resisted mounting evidence that viral particles floating indoors are infectious, some scientists say. The agency maintains the research is still inconclusive."

 

 

The only embarrassing is to read your post! Not embarrassing actually, it down right SAD!

In my world a particle that can move through a room or a droplet that can move 10-20 meter is exactly same. I can get infected, and better wear a mask, right?

Maybe it´s just that I am a little bit more down to earth than you are. Now see to that you read your link a lot of times, so that you can explain the scientific difference for me. At the end it will still be the same, though. You can get infected.

Go have a nice day now! 🙂

The WHO has said the coronavirus disease spreads primarily from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth, which are expelled when a person with COVID-19 coughs, sneezes or speaks.

Whether carried by large droplets that zoom through the air after a sneeze, or by much smaller exhaled droplets that may glide the length of a room, the coronavirus is borne through air and can infect people when inhaled, the scientists said, according to the NYT.

 

the who says "the virus spreads primarily through the air in small droplets when person coughs, sneezes or speaks."

 

the scientists say "no! you're worng!  the virus spreads in the air after a sneeze!"

 

 

well, okay then.  would you also like to confirm the world is not flat?

You seem to really like to argue. But it helps if you actually get the gist of the article in the first place:

 

Quote

The coronavirus is finding new victims worldwide, in bars and restaurants, offices, markets and casinos, giving rise to frightening clusters of infection that increasingly confirm what many scientists have been saying for months: The virus lingers in the air indoors, infecting those nearby.

If airborne transmission is a significant factor in the pandemic, especially in crowded spaces with poor ventilation, the consequences for containment will be significant. Masks may be needed indoors, even in socially-distant settings. Health care workers may need N95 masks that filter out even the smallest respiratory droplets as they care for coronavirus patients.

Ventilation systems in schools, nursing homes, residences and businesses may need to minimize recirculating air and add powerful new filters. Ultraviolet lights may be needed to kill viral particles floating in tiny droplets indoors.

The World Health Organization has long held that the coronavirus is spread primarily by large respiratory droplets that, once expelled by infected people in coughs and sneezes, fall quickly to the floor.

 

So, once again, the news is about the scientists trying to get the W.H.O. to change their recommendations.

Now what is it that you are not understanding?

correct  ...... it's just common sense to wear a mask.  The person near you coughs or sneezes and you have a mask on, then your less likely to be infected. 

Why can't people understand that simple equation. !!

It helps especially if both have masks on.

For the scientists it's a real and important distinction but for you it's not. Got it!
