The Places You’re Most Likely To Catch Covid-19 In Grand Rapids
When the Covid-19 pandemic first began in China and made its way around the globe I think it's safe to say that nobody could have predicted what we would be dealing with over the following years.
Did you ever think you would be getting a swab shoved up your nose to be tested?
or that we would have tests to take at home?
For the first time in our lives, a lot of people would be wearing a mask.
When we first started a two-week lockdown and wore masks in an attempt to slow the spread of Covid-19
we had no clue how easily we could catch or transmit Covid-19.
I still remember wiping down groceries with disinfectant wipes when we brought them inside our house.
As time went out we learned that catching Covid-19 from those things was very unlikely.
Accordign to theconversation.com SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID, spreads mainly by airborne transmission. So the key to preventing transmission is to understand how airborne particles behave, which requires knowledge from physics and chemistry.
A new study by Environmental Science & Technolgy has a better insight into where you're most likely to catch Covid-19. While the chart gives an estimated figure for each situation, the actual risk will depend on the specific parameters, such as exactly how many people are in a room of what size.
When you break down the number these are the places and situations you're most likely to catch Covid-19.
Gathering with lots of people in an enclosed space with poor air quality
Working out inside an under-ventilated gym
Partying In a nightclub
Inside a school classroom
Attending an Indoor Concert
I, like many other people, caught Covid-19 even though I had my first two rounds of the vaccine.
When I got it I was very scared because I'm overweight and have asthma.
