“Third, we modeled the likelihood of shedding SARS-CoV-2 via aerosols. Talking, singing and breathing shed SARS-CoV-2 at comparable rates through droplets and aerosols (up to tens to hundreds of virions/min). As airborne spread is recognized as a key mode of transmission for A(H1N1)pdm0920, our model estimates and comparative analyses support, particularly for highly infectious cases, airborne spread as a transmission mode for SARS-CoV-2. “
“Taken together, our findings provide a potential path forward for disease control. They highlight the disproportionate role of high-risk cases, settings and circumstances in propelling the COVID-19 pandemic. Since highly infectious cases, regardless of age or symptomatology, can rapidly shed SARS-CoV-2 via both droplets and aerosols, airborne spread should also be recognized as a transmission risk, including for superspreading. “
