Those being “aerosol” and “airborne”.
Near as I can tell, the President’s illness is being attributed to flying on Air Force One with Hope Hicks. Which means that sitting around in a well-ventilated enclosed space, talking, without masks, was enough to allow the disease to be transmitted.
But I’m not holding my breath. Based on what I read, the President already attributed Hope Hicks’ infection to being hugged a lot, by military and police. Or something. So — purely out of thin air, and with no evidence whatsoever — the President has already made up a story to explain Hicks’ infection as being unrelated to aerosol spread.
What will it take, before the CDC can say the A-words? It’s not clear to me that’s ever going to happen under this administration.
