Two metres or one: what is the evidence for physical distancing in covid-19?

Date of Publication: August 2020

The information of how safe we need to maintain to avoid COVID-19 transmission needs to be studied in detail. Eventhough virus RNA was found on surfaces, none were thought to be able to transmit disease. The larger droplets traveled farther compared to the smaller droplets. This was due to the increase drag on the smaller droplets. “Breathing out, singing, coughitng and sneezing generated warm moisr high momentum dropplets. These travel faster that the typical backgrund air ventilation flow.”
