Ten scientific reasons in support of airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2

  1. Prevalence of superspreading events.
  2. Long-range transmission in quarantine hotels.
  3. Asymptomatic/presymptomatic transmission by non-coughing people
  4. Indoors > outdoors. Ventilation is important.
  5. Hospital infections even with strict PPE for contact and droplets
  6. viable virus has been detected int he air.
  7. virus identified in air filters and building ducts (only reachable by aerosols)
  8. animal cage infection via air duct
  9. no strong evidence against it.
