Have you considered why all our our efforts. and our authorities’ efforts are not working to stop the spread of COVID-19 ?
Can you imagine being able to see the invisible aerosols that we sneeze-out, cough & spray while talking?
How would you act, if you saw that the person just 1.5 m away from you … was spraying 1,500 ~highly infectious~ fine aerosol droplets … floating ~ swirling invisible … circulating out … up to 30 feet … as clouds of 1 micron (um) droplets … from just 5 minutes of talking …
How would you change your ways if you saw those clouds of 1 um ~highly infectious~ fine aerosols … 50 COVID-coughs worth – up to 117 COVIID-coughs were being BREATHED IN … with every breath … by everyone within 10 feet … even those wearing simple home-made masks … up to 5 hours … after the infected-person left the building ?
How would you change your ways … If you saw that those clouds of ~highly infectious~ fine invisible floating aerosols … were STILL in the room … 3 hours later …
Floating, swirling as each person walks by … infectious for 3 hrs … swirling & circulating inside the room for a full 3 hours … Lurking … waiting… invisible for people WITHOUT MASKS to walk in, and breath them deep into their lungs.
Does ” Social Distancing ” still sound like ‘THE Solution’ **
… when a LOUD TALKER who is shedding shocking amounts of Coronavirus into their throats …. in the 2 days BEFORE symptoms … peak amounts of SARS-CoV-2 virus into their throats … in the mucous … ON THEIR buzzing vibrating VOCAL CORDS … spewing out up to 15,000 highly-infectious fine aerosols
in just 5 minutes of talking…
Now … Do we see why the Coronavirus keeps spreading…. ?
because all the months of CDC and ” As SEEN on … TV ” Talking Head ‘experts’ … (aka Medical doctors) … do NOT know Aerosol Science nor airborne virus transmission ….
because all the months of CDC and ” As SEEN on … TV ” Talking Head ‘experts’ … (aka Medical Doctors) … advice on
~ Hand Washing … Gel … bleaching EVERYTHING… and “Social Distancing” … are basically TOTALLY ineffective … at stopping or protecting us from the PRIMARY COVID-19 risks … from invisible aerosols from TALKING
… moving out 30 ft … for 5 hrs … indoors…
= = = =
All the HANDWASHING in the WORLD … does not protect you at all from breathing in those 1,500 – 15,000 fine highly-infected aerosols floating infectious, circulating around inside a room … from just 5 minutes of talking by someone who was there 3 hrs before you arrived…
ONLY a good mask … that blocks, stops, catches all those 1,500 – 15,000 tiny fine TALKED aerosols … each weigh just 0.0000000000005 grams … so they do NOT fall onto counters or clothing like the big majority of coughed & sneezed droplets…
This means just 5 minutes of TALKING not only generates as many total droplets as an open cough …. TALKING generates 25X times more of those dangerous fine aerosols that we breath in with every breath …
~ 25X more highly infectious fine aerosols …. than an open cough … from normal volume talking ~ that linger lurk circulating in the room for the last 3 hours…
~ Stay well, stay informed, stay safe. ~
**Social Distancing does help protect you from the big heavy spitted droplets from messy talkers, from coughs & sneezes …. but Social distancing of 1.5 meters puts you RIGHT IN THE TARGET ZONE of the Corona virus talker’s fine highly-infectious aerosol clouds….
SO … Either stay home …** or
Only talk with other people in slightly breezy conditions OUTSIDE where the fine aerosols are quickly blown away … diluted out … to harmless levels..
WEAR A GOOD MASK … with proven N-95 materials … a mask that seals well …
to protect yourself … and others …. from the clouds of highly infectious fine aerosols spewed by talkers…
A good mask …. Protecting you as you walk through the grocery store …. from those 1500 fine aerosols … floating around infectious from the previous 3 hrs of people talking in that area that you just walked into…
and yes… There are YEARS of good aerosol science and high quality virology work that prove these troubling realities:
**Coronavirus Incubation Times & Times to onset of symptoms:
March 17, 2020
Source:University of Massachusetts AmherstSummary:
“A new study calculates that the median incubation period for COVID-19 is just over 5 days and that 97.5% of people who develop symptoms will do so within 11.5 days of infection.”

The Science behind the Coronavirus Spread by Talking Problem:
The scientific Aerosol Science results are conclusive:
“1. The particle emission rate during speech is linearly correlated with the amplitude (loudness) of vocalization, for four different languages tested.
2. The particle size distribution is independent of vocalization loudness or language spoken.
3. Some individuals (…. the mysterious Super Spreaders of Coronavirus …) emit particles at a rate more than an order of magnitude larger (10 times more) than their peers, i.e., they behave as “speech superemitters.”
Notice GRAPH “D”
Loud talkers make 4X times more fine high-risk aerosols than soft talkers … Normal volume talkers making 2X times more fine high-risk aerosols than a soft talker.

The next article describes how long Corona virus lasts on surfaces, and in the air…
“Transmission of SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, has quickly outstripped the pace of the 2003 SARS epidemic. “Superspread” of the earlier disease arose from infection during medical procedures, in which a single infected individual seeded many secondary cases. In contrast, the novel coronavirus appears to be spread more through human-to-human transmission in a variety of settings. ”
HOW LONG DOES THE Coronavirus hang around in our homes?
“(Scientists) found that SARS-CoV-2 (in fine 1 um aerosols) was largely stable through the full 180-minute test, with only a slight decline at 3 hours. ”
“The researchers then tested the viruses on a variety of surfaces for up to 7 days, using humidity values and temperatures designed to mimic “a variety of household and hospital situations.” The volumes of viral exposures that the team used were consistent with amounts found in the human upper and lower respiratory tracts.”
“The novel coronavirus was most stable on plastic and stainless steel, with some virus remaining viable up to 72 hours (3 days). However, by that time the viral load had fallen by about three orders of magnitude, ”
Scientists found “the two viruses (SARS-CoV-1 and SARS-CoV-2) differed in staying power on copper and cardboard. No viable SARS-CoV-2 was detectable on copper after 4 hours or on cardboard after 24 hours. … “
