Subject: [MCOH-EH] SARS CoV-19 virus in aerosols study







Here’s the study that was mentioned in the NYTimes this AM.  https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/11/health/coronavirus-aerosols-indoors.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage

about virus in aerosol form detected in hospital air, not associated with aerosol generating procedures:  https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.08.03.20167395v1


You can download the full manuscript from that site.   It’s in pre-print format.  

I guess the next question is, what is a biologically significant concentration of viable virus particles that could ultimately cause disease spread. 

And if we’re out there seeing patients and we are  wearing nothing but  surgical masks…should we re-think that.
