Over 200 scientists believe that the world health organisation, WHO, ignoring the risk that the coronavirus can spread to hang in the air in tiny particles.
Mikrodråberne called aerosols and can hang longer in the air than larger droplets. They can also spread over larger distances, sounds it.
so the researchers against the official position of the WHO and the US Centre for disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
from Here, it's Saturday, that you should only worry about two types of infection: you can Either inhale the small droplets from an infected person in one's immediate vicinity, or in more rare cases can be infected by touching surfaces with the virus on. After that you can then transfer it by touching his nose, mouth, or eyes.
But other experts believe that the WHO guidelines ignore more and more evidence that a third transmission method plays a significant role in the spread of infection the world over.
They believe that more studies show that aerosols can be dangerous in poorly ventilated spaces, buses and other enclosed spaces - even if people keep distances of more than 1.8 meters.
- We are 100% sure on it here, says Lidia Morawska, a professor of atmospheric studies and environmental science at the Queensland University of Technology in Australia.
Along with 239 other researchers accuse she, in an open letter to the WHO for not taking the problem seriously enough. The letter is to be published next week in a journal.
Among other things, scientists believe that a series of events with the 'superspredning' can only have been possible with infection through aerosols.
This applies, among other restaurant-goers in China, who infected each other despite of the distance between the tables, and the choristers in the u.s. state of Washington, who was infected during a try despite several precautions.
the WHO officials acknowledge that the virus in some cases can be transmitted via aerosols.
It applies, among other things, for example, when there is added the trachea in a patient's lungs. It can lead to many microscopic articles sent out of the room.
But WHO does not agree to the type of infection plays a major role, tells the WHO expert Benedetta Allegranzi.
The form of infection 'would have resulted in far more infected and an even faster spreading', she believes.
Allegranzi believe that the evidence for aerosol transmission in too high a degree is based on laboratory studies.
