Droplets Can Stay in the Air for Hours
Last Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its website to inform the public that COVID-19 can be spread by airborne transmission.
Just two weeks ago, CDC mistakenly published a “draft version of proposed changes.” At the end of September, the website was changed, saying that the virus could be spread by air. However, the CDC claimed that it was posted in error.
“CDC is currently updating its recommendations regarding the airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). Once this process has been completed, the updated language will be posted,” the agency stated during that time.
However, just recently, the CDC finally claimed that COVID-19 can be spread via droplets that can remain in the air for hours.
“Some infections can be spread by exposure to the virus in small droplets and particles that can linger in the air for minutes to hours,” the CDC added. “These viruses may be able to infect people who are further than 6 feet away from the person who is infected or after that person has left the space.”
“This kind of spread is referred to as airborne transmission and is an important way that infections like tuberculosis, measles, and chickenpox are spread,” CDC officials revealed.
