In addition to the patterning value mentioned by @ZenHerper :Here is something that makes no sense to me. Perhaps someone can help me understand.
I know where the concept of the 6 feet between people comes from. I had a vet in college that taught us as a general rule there needed to be at least 6 feet between animal cages to greatly reduce the chances of spreading most contagious diseases.
What is 6 feet between people going to do when this C19 is supposedly able to survive on airborne micro droplets for 3 hours, and on surfaces for days? It makes no sense.
I know of a lot of people who've been sick this year, all recovered, tested negative for flu, and the symptoms line up perfectly with C19. If this thing spreads this easily, I can't imagine that anyone in this country hasn't already been exposed to it, myself included. Like any sickness, exposure is not a guarantee that you'll become sick and show symptoms. Some people's immune systems simply fight it off.
Something is fishy here. Very fishy. Red herring fishy. Now we have a Universal Basic Income plan being proposed and supported by both sides? Free gift money for everyone adding up to trillions? We're being played. We're so screwed...
So far there is no evidence that this is spread airborne. The droplets are miniscule and we even emit droplets in conversations. Much more with a cough or sneeze. Although very small droplets can remain airborne, there is no know example or experiment showing the breathing in of airborn droplets is a viable mechanism for transmission. It is the droplets landing on a surface. You, your hands, your hair, your clothes, etc. You then touch that surface and then touch your face - mouth, eyes, nose That is the known path of transmission. The airborne droplets of concern have been shown to have dropped and landed on some surface within 6 feet max.
That is why wearing a mask out in public is of little value. Extremely close contact, the mask is important. But even then it is the eye protection and even face shield that is best.
