Research Roundup: Putting a Number to COVID-19’s Transmissibility and More

Outlet: Some evidence is growing that under specific circumstances, the viral particles can be “aerosolized,” meaning it can carry over air currents for longer distances and stay suspended for longer periods. This has been suspected for months, but the data just wasn’t there, although now researchers out of Colorado State University in the departments of Mechanical Engineering and Energy, Environment and Health, have developed a way of quantifying the dynamics of viral aerosols.
