A study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MIT, finds the risk of being exposed to the COVID-19 virus when you are indoors, is no different whether you are 6 feet away from another person, or 60 feet.
Professors at MIT developed a method of calculating exposure risk to COVID-19 in an indoor setting.
They factored in the amount of time spent inside, air filtration and circulation, immunization, variant strains, mask use and even respiratory activity.
They conclude the CDC and the WHO have omitted too many factors to accurately quantify the risk of indoor transmission.
For more than one year now, various levels of government have told Americans to stay 6 feet away from other people to lower your risk of catching the Covid-19 virus.
