Experts say six feet may not be enough distance to stop coronavirus transmission and lockdown more dangerous

This is very funny because the research by these three so-called experts argues against lockdowns than for it. 
Inside air such an in apartment or house helps Covid-19 spread easier than outdoors.  So what was the point of the lockdown again?
NY Post reports when inside, it might be a good idea to take a few more steps back.

Experts on Tuesday said they believe the six feet of distance recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) may not be enough to limit the transmission of COVID-19.

In a perspective article published in the journal Science, three experts wrote that aerosol particles can accumulate and remain infectious for hours in indoor air, where they can be easily inhaled deep into the lungs.

“Increasing evidence for SARS-CoV-2 suggests the 6 ft WHO recommendation is likely not enough under many indoor conditions where aerosols can remain airborne for hours, accumulate over time, and follow air flows over distances further than 6 ft,” they said.

Chia Wang of National Sun Yat-sen University in Taiwan, as well as Kimberly Prather and Dr. Robert Schooley of the University of California, San Diego, said a large proportion of the COVID-19 spread appears to be occurring through the airborne transmission of aerosols. They added the transmission was produced by asymptomatic individuals during breathing and speaking.
