Scientists created a computer simulation to study how far the virus can travel indoors – and worryingly found how a cloud of droplets will infect others even after the sick person has walked away.
In a statement accompanying the video, the researchers said: “Preliminary results indicate that aerosol particles carrying the virus can remain in the air longer than was originally thought, so it is important to avoid busy public indoor spaces.
“This also reduces the risk of droplet infection, which remains the main path of transmission for coronavirus.”
N95 (or higher) mask, gloves and googles are standard equipment. Tie back hair and use hoodies to minimize body contact. Remove clothes and place in the washing machine when you return, take a shower and then say a prayer as you embrace your family. Six feet is not safe clearance, it is 20 feet. Quarantine period is not 14 days, it is a minimum of 21 days. Saying “I’m sorry” is no longer a valid excuse in the apocalypse. And yes, take a wingman and firearms because this time may just be practice for the future.
