We appeal to the medical community and to relevant national and international bodies to recognize the potential for airborne spread of Coronavirus disease 2019. There is significant potential for inhalation exposure to viruses in microscopic respiratory droplets at short to medium distances, and we are advocating the use of preventive measures to mitigate this route of airborne transmission. Studies by signatories and other scientists have demonstrated beyond any reasonable doubt that viruses are released during exhalation, talking, and coughing in microdroplets small enough to remain aloft in the air and pose a risk of exposure at distances beyond 1-2 m from infected individual. For example, at typical indoor air velocities, 5-m droplet will travel tens of meters, much greater than the scale of a typical room, while settling from height of 1. 5 m to floor. Several retrospective studies conducted after the severe acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 1 epidemic demonstrate that airborne transmission was the most likely mechanism explaining spatial pattern of infections. Retrospective analysis has the same for severe acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2. In particular, studies in their review of records from Chinese restaurants observe no evidence of direct or indirect contact between 3 parties. In their review of video records from restaurant, they observe no evidence of direct or indirect contact between 3 parties. Many studies conducted on the spread of other viruses, including Respiratory syncytial virus, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus, and influenza, show that viable airborne viruses can be exhaled and / or detected in the indoor environment of infected patients. This poses risk that people sharing such environments could potentially inhale these viruses, resulting in infection and disease. There is every reason to expect that SARS-CoV-2 behaves similarly, and that transmission via airborne microdroplets is an important pathway. Viral RNA associated with droplets < 5 m has been detected in the air, and virus has been Show to maintain infectivity in droplets of this size. Other viruses have been shown to survive equally well, if not better, in aerosols compared to droplets on the surface. Current guidance from numerous international and national bodies focuses on hand washing, maintaining social distancing, and droplet precautions. Most Public Health organizations, including the World Health Organization, do not recognize airborne transmission except for aerosol-generating procedures performed in healthcare settings. Hand washing and social distancing are appropriate but, in our view, insufficient to provide protection from virus-carrying respiratory microdroplets released into the air by infected people. This problem is especially acute in indoor or enclosed environments, particularly those that are crowded and have inadequate ventilation relative to the number of occupants and extended exposure periods. For example, airborne transmission appears to be the only plausible explanation for several superspreading events investigated that occur under such conditions, and others where recommend precautions relating to direct droplet transmissions were follow.
