Oxford Academic: It Is Time to Address Airborne Transmission of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
An open letter by Lidia Morawska and Donald K Milton
We appeal to the medical community and to the relevant national and international bodies to recognize the potential for airborne spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). There is significant potential for inhalation exposure to viruses in microscopic respiratory droplets (microdroplets) at short to medium distances (up to several meters, or room scale), and we are advocating for the use of preventive measures to mitigate this route of airborne transmission.
