Scientists have released a video detailing how easily the coronavirus COVID-19 can be spread while at any grocery store.
Millions of people around the world are taking precautions to not contribute to the spread of the coronavirus, and everyday scientists are releasing their discoveries about how the virus works. Scientists from Aalto University in Finland have released a video that shows a 3D simulation of one person who is infected with the coronavirus coughing at a grocery store.
We can see that the person who coughed releases tiny droplets into the air that begin to rise above the shelves in the grocery store, this is called the aerosol cloud. The cloud then begin to travel to the next aisle, eventually dispersing after several minutes. This video shows how important it is for people to make an effort in coughing into their elbow, as doing this will significantly reduce the aerosol cloud spread. A similar study was also conducted on how easy it is to contract the coronavirus while outside exercising, more on that can be found here.
