They are not saying the same thing if you  read the actual article I post below. It's not just transmitted by droplets that fall to the ground after coughing/sneezing but lingers in the air as an aerosol. Not readily transmitted by touching surfaces.

 

239 Experts With 1 Big Claim: The Coronavirus Is Airborne

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.

Already talked about this in the thread.

imo the real news here it is 'possible' that covid could be contagious in droplets small enough to be transferred throughout a buildings central air system and in fact some of the studies were from testing hospital wings for various levels of contagion. It brings up the idea that perhaps these systems need special air filtering..

Thank you for sharing that  information with us. Nothing inspires confidence quite as much as anonymity of sources. Please do not share that information with us. I want to believe.

Believe what you like.

 

I'm certainly not going to mollycoddle you by citing the numerous sources of the information I posted. Do your own research and I'm happy to debate facts you come up with which dispute mine.

Here is an excerpt from and a  link to an excellent article from nature.com.

Nature is one of the world preeminent publishers of scientific research

 

The World Health Organization says the evidence is not compelling, but scientists warn that gathering sufficient data could take years and cost lives.

"When public health officials say there isn't sufficient evidence to say that SARS-CoV-2 is airborne, they specifically mean transported in virus-laden aerosols smaller than 5 micrometres in diameter. Compared with droplets, which are heftier and thought to travel only short distances after someone coughs or sneezes before falling to the floor or onto other surfaces, aerosols can linger in the air for longer and travel further...

And if SARS-CoV-2 is transmitting in aerosols, it is possible that virus particles can build up over time in enclosed spaces or be transmitted over greater distances."

https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-00974-w

 

Yes, most of us figured the evidence, if any, was weak. Thanks for confirming we were right.

But according to our Glorious, BEST-EVER President in ALL of History, or so he claims, the virus is mostly harmless! My guess is that there are at least 132,000 people in the USSA alone and their families and friends who just might disagree about how harmless it really is. 😱

Honorable people back up their claims.

They're not claims. They are facts. Stop being lazy and take up my challenge.
