On March 9 Chinese researchers told the world that the Covid-19 virus travels at least 15 feet. New NBC story says 6-foot social distancing was too arbitrary.

The NBC news headline today, August 26, reads 6 feet may not always be enough distance to protect from COVID-19, new report suggests.

The NBC story summarizes "The current guidance for safe social distancing may not be enough to stop the spread of COVID-19, a new analysis suggests."

The South China Morning Post March 9 headline read Coronavirus can travel twice as far as official ‘safe distance’ and stay in air for 30 minutes, Chinese study finds.

The SCMP story told us: "The coronavirus that causes Covid-19 can linger in the air for at least 30 minutes and travel up to 4.5 metres – further than the “safe distance” advised by health authorities around the world, according to a study by a team of Chinese government epidemiologists."

The "4.5 metres" linear distance is approximately 15 feet.

Can the time distance between March 9 and August 26 - 170 days or nearly 6 months - also be measured in unnecessary deaths?
