The more health experts learn about COVID-19, the more they seem to refute what they previously told us was true.
The latest involves the virus and how safe it is to be outside. And the answer is it’s about 100% safe to be outside, where there is very little chance of spreading or contracting the virus, according to a report from The Washington Post.
Per the Post, scientists and health experts are now saying that “the outdoor spaces warming under spring sun should be viewed as havens in the battle against coronavirus and restriction-induced fatigue.”
The report went on to say that nearly all cases of COVID are spread indoors. Interestingly, this news follows a CDC statement that indicated it is highly unlikely to pick up the virus from touching contaminated surfaces.
“For more than a year, the vast majority of documented coronavirus clusters have been linked to indoor or indoor-outdoor settings — households, meatpacking plants, nursing homes and restaurants,” the Post reported. “Near-absent are examples of transmission at beaches and other open spaces where breezes disperse airborne particles, distancing is easier, and humidity and sunlight render the coronavirus less viable.”
So go ahead. Pack the stadium. Hit the beach. Fly a kite. Because today, it appears even those who are terrified of the virus can finally feel safe breathing, ya know, fresh air.
