Scientists Demand The WHO Answer A Question There's No Real Answer To Yet

The demand is that the WHO acknowledge publicly that the novel coronavirus behind COVID-19 can be airborne.

That means it can spread through the air (and linger there) via tiny aerosols emitted by the breath of infected people, not just large droplets.

The letter puts the WHO in a tight spot.
