Be Aware of Droplets and Bubbles!

Covid-19 appears to spread mostly through respiratory droplets.
But what is a droplet and how can droplets spread diseases?
Here is a short graphic essay to finding out the answers.

 Pathogenic respiratory droplets mostly created by spitting, sneezing and coughing in public.
But what happens when someone spit?
Here is the answer through visuals.

All the visuals have been created following the fascinating researches done by Lydia Bourouiba and group, Fluid Dynamics Lab Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

The comics has been published as a graphic essay in ‘Annals of Internal Medicine’ December 1, 2020 (https://www.acpjournals.org/doi/10.7326/G20-0114).

Here is the original publications from Bouroubia group: click here
