Covid is Airborne
Clear communication on airborne transmission
The Public Health Agency of Canada has acknowledged airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 for nearly a year. Department of Education and Early Childhood Development emails obtained by PoPNB through Right to Information requests show officials discussing airborne spread since 2020.
Until airborne transmission is acknowledged, communicated and actively mitigated, we will not see the end of the pandemic.
The omission of airborne transmission in Public Health communication is an abject moral and ethical failure. It directly contributes to the illness, disability and death of New Brunswickers.
PoP NB has developed a brief slide deck on how Covid-19 is transmitted.
