Infectious particles can spread beyond 2 meters when someone with COVID-19 coughs without a mask, study suggests

How far and quickly smaller droplets travel when a person coughs varies, according to the study.Patrick Pleul/picture alliance via Getty Images People with COVID-19 may spew infectious particles that can spread beyond two meters. Cambridge University scientists used computer simulations to test scenarios of a person coughing. The study's authors urged people to keep wearing masks in indoor spaces such as offices and shops.

High school students in a social distanced classroom. RichLegg/Getty Images An MIT study published Tuesday suggested social distancing did little to limit airborne coronavirus transmission indoors. But the study didn't look at whether social distancing stops coronavirus spreading via other routes. The virus can also spread in larger droplets when people cough or sneeze, or via direct contact with surfaces. See more stories on Insider's business page. A study published Tuesday in a ...
