Int'l scientists say COVID-19's airborne spread isn't how WHO classifies it Updated: 2020-07-06 09:21:48 KST

Hundreds of scientists are urging the World Health Organization to fully acknowledge the airborne spread of COVID-19, highlighting the need for the agency to revise its recommendations.
In an open letter to the WHO, 239 experts from 32 countries outlined evidence that smaller particles can infect people, contrary to what the WHO says.
The WHO says the virus spreads primarily by large respiratory droplets that, once expelled by infected people via coughs and sneezes, fall quickly to the ground.
The scientists plan to publish their letter in a scientific journal next week.
