Fine aerosols emitted during talking and singing may play a crucial role in COVID-19 transmission: Singapore study

A new study has revealed that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) particles can be aerosolized by an infected person during talking and singing. Researchers concluded that fine respiratory aerosols may play a significant role in SARS-CoV-2 transmission, especially in an indoor environment, and hence, should be taken into consideration when planning infection prevention measures.
