They /claim/ they are not allowed to remove official tweets. But they could post a correction…but have not.
#COVIDisAirborne hence why he ability for open windows to “blow it away” . Droplets don’t get blown away. They ......well.....drop.
Aerosols float and have the need for HCWers to wear FFP3. Which they don’t get in U.K. for coughing infectious patient care. Wildly illogical.https://twitter.com/GOVUK/status/1420385660326879234 …
The March 2020 message that Covid-19 is contracted through fomites and large droplets inside of 2m distance and all that hand washing (as a primary defense) was
My problem with the message here is that nobody tried a high-spec
#masks4All (for ALL) strategy to stop the pandemic with a lower grade of lockdown. People will read this and take that their high-lockdown country got it right #confirmationBias.https://twitter.com/RKI_fuer_Euch/status/1419921318745714688 …
"Investing in preparedness saves lives, and it saves money. It's only a question of when, not whether, the world suffers the next pandemic of influenza or another airborne virus - which is more difficult than

Anyway, to others, Pubmed makes many articles right now available for free. You can read the hundreds and hundreds of papers about airborne/aerosol.
You can read the
‘From a public health standpoint, the term “airborne” is not actionable on its own because it offers no clear guidance on how to curtail exposure risk’ Is this the crux of pandemic failure?Medics who don’t know just assuming nobody else knows.

Think I worded this badly - filtration efficiency gets better with lower flow rates. A mask that performs in the 90's at 28.3 liters per min, can drop to the 70's when the flow rate increases to 85 liters per min.
i.e. the slower the flow through the filtration medium, then better the F.E. percentage for 65nm particles (NaCL or PSL) .. or not - vote above!
True or false: measured filtration effectiveness of N95 masks at the 28.3 liters per min of the ASTM standards is like **much higher** than the 95% filtration effectiveness at the 85 liters per min of the NIOSH (N95) standard?
My advice is get the largest size you can (usually rated in terms of floor area), ENERGY STAR rated preferably, and run it at a lower speed for less noise.
"Let it rip early 2020", and "let it rip mid 2021" are not attempts to handle the pandemic and are not represented.
New "airborne viruses in the movies" timeline - https://its-airborne.org/in-the-movies . Two entries so far. Suggestions pls.
As England formally drops restrictions for many things including masks today, ignoring "the right to be forgotten", here's a full list of people in the whole UK that have been cited/ticketed for not wearing a mask in a setting where they were obligated to: https://tinyurl.com/uk-maskless-citations …
Less than 1 in 10,000 chance of becoming infected after touching a contaminated surface according to
@CDCgov. The same low risk does not apply to taking 10,000 breaths of contaminated air.
Or let us know the arguments used to drive policy? Was the inability to supply the masses with N95 grade masks for the duration one of the facts that guided policy?
