Novel coronavirus / COVID-19 guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the USA Center for Disease Control (CDC) suggests that peoople around the world should stay approximately 6 feet apart. Unfortunately, according to MIT associate professor Lydia Bourouiba, pathogen-bearing droplets of all sizes can travel 23 to 27 feet.
In the study published here in late March, 2020, Dr. Bourouiba showed that current guidelines for Social Distancing is based on models published in the 1930s. The video below shows a slow-motion sneeze, filmed for a study on the physics of sneezes and coughs by Dr. Bourouiba.
The video shows a close-up view of a sneeze filmed at 2000 frames per second. Dr. Bourouibas research shows a hot, moist, turbulent gas cloud containing air and mucosalivary droplets that travel as far as 26 feet (7-8 meters).

Ugh. And monkeys may fly out of my butt.
Any idiot knew this, which makes this “Social Distancing” nothing but an ignorant obedience test.
There was an obese woman in Costco who sneezed like a horse. Bet her cooties could travel 40+ feet.
I’m going to sneeze. At who? At choooo!
“Ugh. And monkeys may fly out of my butt.”
Well, then stop shoving monkeys up your ass.
Dude — put some pants on!
Sneeze in a good Kansas wind and it’ll go for miles.
Will they go 26 feet?
Well if this isn’t a reason to accept Global authoritarian governance, I don’t know what is.
One of the big reasons I don't go to Costco. The main reason is all the people who go there or Walmart when they are sick.
Feed the hysteria shut down the country. There is one of the stories every day. Yesterday it was conversation can spread it. The pace will pick up as we get close to May. They sense Trump is not going to let the Dr Doom horror show finish off the country. We should have had at least 50,000 additional deaths this week according to what he said on Monday.
I’ll set my flame thrower to 26 feet then by pressure regulator. I’ll hide in my bunker and send out warning flares every now and then.
Seriously. Why do people keep posting this crap? What benefit is there? Do we want so much panic that the country stops all together and we all die? I just don’t get what you are trying to do here at FR? I see your name on nearly all these BS posts.
I don’t even remember sneezing being a symptom. Coughing, specifically dry cough, yes.
Even Fauci has debunked this
That may happen ina lab setting of strictly controlled parameters, but its the real life situations we are affected by.
the NYC/ICU doc said it travels from hand to mouth. They aren’t wearing N95 masks unless they do a particular treatment that makes the ICU patient cough. WHO is full of poo.
