“The C.D.C. has not emphasized the risk of aerosol transmission enough.” — @celinegounder in a new and important story from @apoorva_nyc Amen. I worked in an OSHA compliance office for a summer and am *shocked* at the lax workplace standards for Covid. nytimes.com/2021/02/17/hea…

This opening line by @apoorva_nyc crushes me. "NEARLY A YEAR after scientists showed that" covid is airborne "more than a dozen experts are calling on the Biden admin to take immediate action to limit airborne transmission" Took a full year. Wow. 1/4 nytimes.com/2021/02/17/hea…

I have no idea what @CDCgov means when it says N95s were not recommended for the “general public for reasons supported by science, comfort, costs and practicality.” They are clearly more effective based on science and I find them more comfortable too. nytimes.com/2021/02/17/hea…
