    Experts tell White House coronavirus can spread through talking or even just breathing

    I mentioned a couple of times in the last two weeks that China said the virus was aerosolized. Now experts let the Administration in on it.

    A prestigious scientific panel told the White House Wednesday night that research shows coronavirus can be spread not just by sneezes or coughs, but also just by talking, or possibly even just breathing.


    "While the current [coronavirus] specific research is limited, the results of available studies are consistent with aerosolization of virus from normal breathing," according to the letter, written by Dr. Harvey Fineberg, chairman of a committee with the National Academy of Sciences.



    Fineberg told CNN that he will wear start wearing a mask when he goes to the grocery store.

    Surely China spraying the air had to be a freaking clue.
    We are all brothers and sisters in humanity. We are all made from the same dust of stars. We cannot be separated because all life is interconnected.

    A cough or sneeze can travel upwards of 200 mph. Even if you stay the recommended 12 feet away, if a victim sneezes, you aren't going to get out of the way. So you're still dead meat or lucky.

    I would say based on the death rates, you are unlucky if you die that way.
