A new scientific study published by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has demonstrated the total ineffectiveness of social distancing in stopping the spread of the CCP Virus.
The new study is already generating fear among promoters of confinement and isolation by determining that people who keep 60 feet of distance from other people indoors are no more protected than if they were socially distanced by only 6 feet.
“We need to get scientific information out to the public in a way that is not just fear-mongering, but is actually based on analysis,” said study author Martin Bazant in an interview with Fox News.
In this regard, the peer-reviewed study, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science of the United States (PNAS), developed a model to calculate the risk of exposure to the CCP Virus indoors. They took into account multiple factors such as the amount of time spent indoors, air filtration and circulation, immunization, strain variants, masks, and respiratory activity such as breathing, eating, or talking.
They concluded that the 6 feet (2 meters) distance rule would make practically no sense other than to generate panic, distrust, and even phobia due to the proximity of people.
“It really has no physical basis because the air a person is breathing while wearing a mask tends to rise and comes down elsewhere in the room so you’re more exposed to the average background than you are to a person at a distance (Six feet),” Bazant said.
In developing protocol guidelines, CDC and the World Health Organization have overlooked the amount of time spent indoors, Bazant says. Such omissions on the part of health agencies do not appear to be coincidental but instead, seem to have the sole purpose of sowing more fear and generating more influence on society.
The study asserts that both the CDC and WHO have never provided a logical justification to argue for distancing. They have only said that this is the right thing to do and the only justification.
“What our analysis continues to show is that many spaces that have been shut down in fact don’t need to be. Often times the space is large enough, the ventilation is good enough, the amount of time people spend together is such that those spaces can be safely operated even at full capacity.” Professor Bazant continued.
As with smoking, even people wearing masks can be affected by secondhand smoke that travels through the enclosed area and lingers. The same logic applies to airborne virus droplets, according to the study.
Given these findings, a good ventilation system, which is nothing more than open windows generating air recirculation, is the most effective in reducing risk in enclosed spaces, much more so than the distancing so strongly recommended by health authorities.
Currently, the CDC recommends staying at least 6 feet away from other people and wearing a mask to slow the spread of the CCP virus, citing the fact that the virus spreads primarily between people who are in close contact for a prolonged period.
The study shows that when masks are worn, the primary respiratory flow resembles a rising thermal plume, posing significantly less risk to neighbors. With a population of individuals wearing face masks, the threat posed by respiratory jets will thus be largely eliminated, while that of the well-mixed ambient will remain.
In short, experts conclude, “The distancing isn’t helping you that much and it’s also giving you a false sense of security, because you’re as safe at six feet as you are at 60 feet if you’re indoors. Everyone in that space is at roughly the same risk, actually,” Bazant asserts.
