Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have updated their COVID-19 guidelines to recognize the risk of coronavirus transmission through airborne respiratory particles – but then edited its website again on Monday morning to remove that information, saying it was still under review.Prior to its removal, the updated guidelines stated that the coronavirus was most often spread “through respiratory droplets or small particles, such as those in aerosols,” which are produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, sings. , speaks or even just breathes, and which can stay in flight for a while. The virus can then spread to other people who inhale it through their airways.

Many scientists and health experts have been warning for months that COVID-19 can spread through airborne respiratory particles, not just through large droplets from an infected person coughing or sneezing nearby.
