Outstanding interview with Prof of Infection Diseases Woo-Joo Kim of the Korean University Guro Hospital, with experience in SARS, MERS, Swine Flu and COVID19. A kind of CV19 101.

Some really good information in short, concise replies in an interview about viruses, CV19, masks, infection rates, age ranges (no one in teens or 20s got CV19 in SK), antibodies, immunity, prospects.

How can we prevent CV19? "Wash your hands well and wear a mask."

It's 42 minutes long but someone in the below comments, Khotso, one week ago, posted an interview timeline of the questions and answers.

Airborne coronavirus detected in Wuhan hospitals

This, if true, is going to make the two metre social distancing redundant.

Adding to growing evidence that the novel coronavirus can spread through the air, scientists have identified genetic markers of the virus in airborne droplets, many with diameters smaller than one-ten-thousandth of an inch.

That had been previously demonstrated in laboratory experiments, but now Chinese scientists studying real-world conditions report that they captured tiny droplets containing the genetic markers of the virus from the air in two hospitals in Wuhan, China, where the outbreak started.


It remains unknown if the virus in the samples they collected was infectious, but droplets that small, which are expelled by breathing and talking, can remain aloft and be inhaled by others.

“Those are going to stay in the air floating around for at least two hours,” said Linsey Marr, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Virginia Tech who was not involved with the Nature paper. “It strongly suggests that there is potential for airborne transmission.”
