A friend (thanks, Ted!) directed me to a nice science-based article that assigns some probabilities of risks of transmitting a disease like coronavirus. The author highlights two major scenarios:
- Warm body transmission: how far apart should you be from other people if you want to avoid transmission from another “warm body”
- Surface-based transmission: what precautions should you take when you go somewhere that others have passed through recently.
You won’t be surprised by the takeaways:
- 6 foot distancing is good
- wearing a mask is good
- washing hands is good
…but some of the discussion and details are interesting. View the full article at Medium.
