This is not a virus that's just floating around in the air and is going to come and infect you - it does require prolonged contact with infected people.
The newspaper said the experts had been warning for months that tiny particles, or aerosols, can be emitted when an infected person simply breathes or talks and they can remain in the air for hours, especially in places with poor ventilation. We have looked at the mother.
Dr. Benedetta Alleganzi, WHO complex guide for infection avoidance and control, claimed for the duration of a media briefing in Geneva on Tuesday that the company has reviewed and collaborated with numerous scientists who signed the letter saying WHO hasn't been forthright about airborne transmission. In a document detailing scientific evidence, the United Nations agency still maintained that "detailed investigations of these clusters suggest that droplet and fomite transmission could also explain human-to-human transmission".
WHO's technical lead Benedetta Allegranzi said: "The possibility of airborne transmission in public settings, especially in very specific conditions, crowded, closed, and poorly ventilated settings that have been described, can not be ruled out".
On Thursday, the World Health Organization noted that studies evaluating Covid-19 outbreaks in restaurants, choir practices and fitness classes suggested the virus might have been spread in the air. University of Maryland aerobiologist Dr. Donald Milton said he has "mixed feelings" towards the latest World Health Organization brief.
"It is a transfer in the suitable course, albeit a small one".
The WHO technical leads spoke to the letter during the organisation's daily briefing on the pandemic.
How does the coronavirus disease spread?
Customers sit in chairs at the tables arranged for maintaining social distance between guests at a dining room of a restaurant, as the city eases the restrictions imposed to control the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Sao Paulo, Brazil July 6, 2020.
"Respiratory secretions or droplets expelled by infected individuals can contaminate surfaces and objects, creating fomites (contaminated surfaces)".
The President has consistently said that Chinese officials failed to report the outbreak of the CCP virus to the WHO and pressured the WHO "to mislead the world when the virus was first discovered by Chinese authorities".
Donald Milton, a University of Maryland aerosol expert, said "peer-reviewed scientific publications clearly demonstrate that particles even as large as 30 microns can move on air currents and travel more than 10 meters indoors".
Al Jazeera: From your research and the evidence collected, how much has the aerosol mode of transmission contributed to the pandemic so far and how do the risks of airborne spread compare with droplet transmission?
