6′ isn’t enough distancing

“…SARS fomites remain active for about three hours while suspended in air or gas… coronavirus-bearing droplets of all sizes can travel 23 to 27 feet from their host after emission….turbulent gas clouds and respiratory pathogen emissions pose a threat to the public even without the presence of a host. In other words: the longer an individual is outside unprotected, the higher the contraction risk.”

MIT researcher says the 6-feet social distancing rule isn’t enough to flatten the curve

Turbulent Gas Clouds and Respiratory Pathogen Emissions, Potential Implications for Reducing Transmission of COVID-19

Either #WearAFuckingMask or #StayTheFuckHome

Alameda is pretty much a total fail here, so few wear masks when out. This needs to change. EVERYONE SHOULD WEAR A MASK WHEN OUTDOORS.

Hell, yesterday I saw a maskless adult walk directly up to a child crouched on the sidewalk [completely unaware of the adult while doing chalk-drawings] and step OVER her.  WTAF people.

Alive. Swim (fly is the best). Walking with my dog (weims are the best). Life is good. Would prefer people understood negative externalities and prevented themselves from creating them. Feeling the love anyway. View all posts by Denise Lai
