2 Meters Of Distance Insufficient Without Masks: COVID-19 Study

Many public health standards advocate a two-meter physical distance between people from different houses, however, scientists from Quebec, Illinois, and Texas claim that this is inadequate to prevent COVID-19 from spreading. When individuals are unmasked, more than 70% of airborne particles cross the two-metre barrier in less than 30 seconds, according to the study. When masks are worn, however, fewer than 1% of particles pass through the two-meter barrier.
