It can spread as an aerosol?!?
by Adam Taggart
Chinese officials are now warning that the Wuhan coronavirus may spread by aerosol transmission.
We have known it spreads via fomites contained within mucus-based globules, spread by coughing, sneezing, etc.
But if it also transmits from human to human via aerosol means, it’s likely FAR more contagious than previously feared:
Many of the most contagious diseases, like measles, spread as aerosols — tiny particles that hang in the air for a protracted time.
If confirmed, this makes a very bad situation substantially worse.
And adding to the hit parade of bad news, recent research shows that coronavirus particles can survive on surfaces for up to 5-9 days. At least, the good news is that chlorine-based cleaners (like simple bleach) appear effective at killing the virus within 1 minute.
So, again, good hygiene practices are our best defense here. Avoid exposure. When in public areas, protect your eyes/nose/mouth/skin. And sanitize often.
Meanwhile, the data shows the virus continues to spread around the world. And we continue to see more indirect evidence that the infected and fatality data out of China may be much higher than what’s being officially reported.
Folks, this virus is a beast.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
