The risk of spreading infection is highest through speaking and talking in homes or in closed rooms without wearing a mask. This information has come out in a study. In this research, it has been told that when speaking, droplets of different sizes come out of the mouth and they can contain different amounts of virus. According to the researchers of the study, the most worrying droplets are those that are medium in size and can stay in the air for several minutes. They found that these droplets can reach a reasonable distance from the flow of air. Adrienne Becks of the US National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases said, ‘We all have seen that when people talk, there are thousands of drops of spit, but there are thousands more that cannot be seen with the naked eye. .’ “When the water vaporizes from these virus-containing droplets released while speaking, they can float in the air like smoke for several minutes, posing a risk to others,” said senior author of the study. The researchers reviewed several studies on the physiological and therapeutic aspects of aerosol droplets in virus transmission since the start of the COVID-19 global pandemic. They concluded that airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 is not only the main route of transmission of COVID-19, but interacting in confined spaces without wearing a mask represents the activity that poses the greatest risk to others. The study’s authors said that eating and drinking often takes place indoors and is usually loud-talked, so it should not be surprising that bars and restaurants have recently become hotspots of infection. Were. The study was published Tuesday in the journal Internal Medicine.
