Coronavirus droplets could travel 27 feet, warns MIT researcher

Lydia Bourouiba, Ph.D., an associate professor at MIT and expert in fluid dynamics, in her research says that a sneeze results in a turbulent gas cloud that could contain coronavirus droplets that can travel up to 27 feet. The research could have major implications for social distancing measures around the world. The CDC and the WHO, for example, call for six and three feet of space, respectively.
