(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – Happening Now: In what should be a development that encourages more Americans to get back to work and more employers to demand that their employees come back to work, a just-released study calls into doubt how infectious COVID-19 is in an office setting and, quite possibly, most other employment settings.
As reported by the New York Post:
“The coronavirus loses about 50 percent of its ability to infect about 10 seconds after it becomes airborne in a typical office environment, according to a new study about how the deadly bug survives in exhaled air.
“‘People have been focused on poorly ventilated spaces and thinking about airborne transmission over meters or across a room,’ said Prof. Jonathan Reid, director of the University of Bristol’s Aerosol Research Centre, the Guardian reported.
“‘I’m not saying that doesn’t happen, but I think still, the greatest risk of exposure is when you’re close to someone,’ said Reid, the lead author of the study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed.” [emphasis added]
“The study determined that viral particles quickly lose moisture and dry out after they are expelled from the lungs. The particles’ pH also rises rapidly when the carbon dioxide in their environment drops, the news outlet reported.” [emphasis added]
This can only be seen as good news.
What do you think? What is your opinion? Is this good news? Is it time for Americans to get back to work?
