MIT researchers: Risk of contracting COVID-19 indoors the same at 6ft and 60ftThe risk of contracting COVID-19 indoors is the same when socially distanced six feet apart and 60 feet apart, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) say.
Covid exposure risk indoors 'just as bad at 60ft apart as 6ft' new study claims
Massachusetts Institute of Technology analysed superspreading events, including airplane travel and choir practise to show just how far tiny airborne droplets containing Covid can travel
MIT researchers say you're no safer from Covid indoors at 6 feet or 60 feet in new study challenging social distancing policies
The CDC and WHO guidelines fail to factor in the amount of time spent indoors, which increases the chance of transmission the longer people are inside.
MIT researchers: Risk of contracting COVID-19 indoors the same at 6ft and 60ft
The risk of contracting COVID-19 indoors is the same when socially distanced six feet apart and 60 feet apart, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) say.
MIT COVID study shows indoors, masks may be more important than social distancing
Social distancing has its limits, but masks can be "extremely effective," study's authors find.
A method to assess COVID-19 transmission risks in indoor settings
Two MIT professors have proposed a new approach to estimating the risks of exposure to Covid-19 under different indoor settings. The guideline they developed suggests a limit for exposure time, based on the number of people, the size of the space, the kinds of activity, whether masks are worn, and the ventilation and filtration rates.
Staying 6 feet apart indoors does almost nothing to stop the spread of COVID-19, MIT study finds
Scientists from MIT recalculated the risk of exposure and found that the main indoor precaution - social distancing - probably isn't doing much.
MIT social distancing study finds 'there really isn't much of a benefit to the 6-foot-rule' indoors
A pair of professors from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology say indoor social distancing guidelines are unnecessary and not based on science, after finding that it makes virtually no difference whether folks are 6 or 60 feet apart when it comes to the spread of COVID-19.What are the details?MIT professors Martin Bazant and John W.M. Bush have published a study arguing that "the current revival of the American economy is being predicated …
A new MIT study casts doubt on the so-called 6-foot rule. Will you still keep your distance?
The study found that time spent inside, mask status, and air filtration were much more significant factors than social distancing.
A New Study of COVID-19 Transmission Questions the Adequacy of the Six-Foot Rule and the Rationale for Many Occupancy Limits
A new MIT study of COVID-19 transmission casts doubt on both the adequacy of physical distancing guidelines and the rationale for occupancy limits in large, well-ventilated indoor settings. The study, published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, highlights the danger from tiny respiratory droplets that circulate throughout a room, which cannot be avoided by maintaining a distance of six feet from other people, as long …
MIT Study Suggests Six Foot Social Distancing, Limited Occupancy Rules Are Completely Pointless
After over a year, scientists have determined that social distancing and limited occupancy rules may be totally useless.
