Avoiding aerosol transmission

Really interesting article in Popular Science about droplet size and aerosol size (who woulda thunk that anyone would wanna read this stuff a year ago? My, it’s been a long year).

Not sure I agree with it all – in fact, I think they haven’t really shown enough about what happens with a sick person – but one thing I did get from this article: I really really really really don’t wanna be in the same room as a cougher.

Most coughers don’t carry coronavirus, of course.

But how would you ever know which ones did?

Which is why everyone should wear masks, especially coughers and sneezers and throat clearers and yellers and loud talkers and loud laughers and well, everyone.
