The analysis of the infectious virus showed that a significant number of flu patients routinely shed infectious virus, not merely detectable RNA, into aerosol particles small enough to present a risk for airborne transmission
To our knowledge, this study is the closest re-creation of airborne transmission
in the home or LPM slaughter setting.
Wilson: Airborne transmission

Cases of kennel cough are reported to have passed by airborne transmission
between dogs who are more than one mile apart.
Evidence of airborne transmission

of infectious disease is a major public health concern.
Now, most scientists understand that there are significant physical and evolutionary barriers to a blood- and fluid-borne virus developing airborne transmission
, as Garrett has acknowledged.
Typically, airborne transmission
requires a four-hour exposure to the sick individual over a one-week period.
Because droplets do not remain suspended in the air, special air handling and ventilation are not required to prevent droplet transmission; that is, droplet transmission must not be confused with airborne transmission
There are different pathways of pathogen transport such as direct contact with an infected person or as airborne transmission
or a combination of pathways.
has not been documented to date.
The main route of M genavense infection in the diamond doves was most likely airborne, suggesting a potential zoonotic risk of airborne transmission
between humans and birds.
However, airborne precautions, including use of N95 respirators and placement of patients in negative pressure isolation rooms, offers the theoretical benefit of limiting airborne transmission
If someone sneezed right in your face, it's possible--but not likely--that droplets might land on your mucus membranes and infect you, but that is not airborne transmission
1-2, the Agency quietly changed the language of their Pathogen Safety Data Sheet on Ebola to softer, less alarming language on airborne transmission
, including the removal of citations to key scientific literature.
