Response to OhNo-Really (Reply #6)

9. I understand.

I wrote that it was an interesting and frightening article.

I just want to know if there is any other coronavirus that survives "in the air" for 30 minutes, as is claimed in the article.

Some of the claims made in the article should be inspected by people with expertise in epidemiology or virology IMO.

If that claim were true, that you could walk through a place where someone with the virus sneezed thirty minutes ago and get infected, and that most people who walked through that "cloud" before you became infected, you would expect an unimaginable number of infections. Much of the advice being given by the WHO and CDC would be a moot point. So far, no western experts have alleged this virus can survive for half an hour in the air.

Let's just see if the journal provides a sensible explanation for the retraction of the article. That's all I'm saying.
