Scientists call on WHO to say smaller, airborne particles can transmit COVID-19

239 scientists in 32 countries wrote an open letter they plan to publish giving evidence smaller particles can infect people with COVID-19, the New York Times reported Saturday. They ask the World Health Organization to revise recommendations. WHO spokesman Tarik Jasarevic said in an email to Reuters they are reviewing the article but the evidence for the virus being airborne was not convincing.

Man, just when you think that the WHO's reputation could not sink any lower you find out that they are ignoring science and have to be petitioned to get their facts correct.

I saw this reported in the science press. There's no consensus yet but it's really serious if it's true 😥 it would also no make face masks pretty useless!

Silly scientists, don't you know that to get the WHO to back your science you have to pay up.

WHO seems intent on supporting the notion of the virus being less pervasive, therefore less transmissible, because this would decrease the symptomatic response of the population as well as the virus' lethality.

More evidence that the WHO is not even at the wheel, let alone steering us the right way.
