Shit. That is not good news. Thank you for sharing theanimal. That shatters a lot of assumptions, need to reevaluate my plans.theanimal wrote: ↑Mon Mar 09, 2020 5:21 pmLab finds that virus can travel further than safe distance advised by health agencies and can stay in air for up to 30 min.

What can we do to mitigate risk based on these new findings? I wasn't planning on wearing a mask before, just maintaining distance, but if the virus can not only travel 4.5 meters but also can stay in the air for 30 minutes, that is a whole different ball game. It feels like a mask is essentially a requirement now.
Do we think it can travel that far in buildings or are the findings limited to buses, trains and the like? Either way, it staying in the air, instead of immediately falling to the ground, sounds very problematic for avoiding infection in public places.
