It's in air.

We already know that the way many people are catching the novel coronavirus is by getting too close to droplets - someone's sneeze, cough or, yes, even spit while they're talking. But...more scientists are now saying the virus can also be airborne....that aerosols can hang in the air and float for periouds of time. And those scientists want policy makers to act accordingly.
