Wearing masks could help you avoid major illness even if you get coronavirus, experts say
July 21, 2020 · · Original resource · news

As health experts urge the public to wear masks to slow the spread of the coronavirus, they continue to get pushback. Among the arguments of skeptics: If masks can’t fully protect me against COVID-19, what is the point of wearing them?Scientists’ counterargument is that masks can help reduce the severity of the disease caused by coronavirus even if you get infected.

How might coronavirus be transmitted on a flight and what can you do to protect yourself?
Aug. 29, 2020 · · Original resource · news

It's possible to pick up coronavirus on a flight through direct contact with an infected person, or from a surface that they might touch. You can also become infected via droplet transmission if someone with COVID-19 coughs or sneezes in close proximity to you.Then there's the risk of inhaling small virus particles circulating in the air.

Can Air Conditioners Spread COVID-19?
Aug. 15, 2020 · · Original resource · news

In the dog days of August, air conditioning is everywhere. Is that a problem when it comes to the spread of the coronavirus? The answer to that question rests on the way the virus is transmitted — a topic that is still being researched.

How likely are you to be infected by the coronavirus on a flight?
Aug. 21, 2020 · · Original resource · news

Is it safe to fly with the coronavirus still circulating? That depends partly on where you are. But while hard evidence is scarce, it appears the risk of being infected with the coronavirus during a flight is relatively low. “Overall, planes are probably safer than poorly ventilated pubs, where similar densities of people do not wear masks and talk a lot and loudly,” says Julian Tang at the University of Leicester in the UK.

Can COVID-19 Spread Through The Air?
July 10, 2020 · · Original resource · news

More than 200 scientists this week wrote a letter to the World Health Organization (WHO), reporting there’s a good chance that COVID-19 can be spread through the air. While the WHO has previously said most transmission happens from direct contact with droplets from an infected person’s cough or sneeze, these experts say the virus can actually stay suspended in the air. If this is true, it’s bad news for people who gather in crowded, poorly ventilated spaces. A lot of questions remain, however, about if this is accurate.  Joining Ira to talk about this story, and more is Nsikan Akpan, a science editor at National Geographic, based in Washington, D.C.
