A new scientific study has warned that a basic conversation can spray coronavirus-infected droplets across an entire room.

According to tabloid newspaper The Daily Mirror, researchers from the Princeton University used a high-speed camera. They filmed the movement of respiratory droplets in a room.

The videos revealed that plosive sounds like “P” create puffs of air in front of the speaker. It results in a cone-shaped “jet-like” airflow from the speaker’s mouth.

“People should recognize that they have an effect around them,” said Howard Stone, one of the proponents of the research.

Meanwhile, even short phrases were found to move particles beyond the one-meter distancing recommended by the World Health Organization.

“If you speak for 30 seconds in a loud voice, you are going to project aerosol more than six feet in the direction of your interlocutor,” Stone explained.

They hope the findings will highlight the importance of ventilation on top of the use of face masks to reduce the further spread of coronavirus.

“Face masks really cut this flow tremendously in a room. This identifies why [they] play a big role. They cut everything off,” Stone added.
