The Debate over COVID-19 as an Airborne Virus
Lisa Brosseau, PhD, professor (retired) of environmental and occupational health sciences, was referenced in an article by The Atlantic addressing questions regarding the airborne nature of COVID-19.
Recommendations assume that the virus isn’t generally airborne. Because it might be, health-care workers should err on the side of precaution by wearing N95s and using even better respirators for more dangerous procedures, argues Lisa Brosseau of the University of Illinois at Chicago. All of this equipment is in short supply, but health-care workers at least deserve to know what the ideal measures are.
