White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Monday that he thinks "there certainly is a degree of aerosolization" causing the coronavirus to spread, although the topic is still being studied.
In July, the WHO published new guidance that acknowledged it can't rule out the possibility the coronavirus can be transmitted through air particles in closed spaces indoors, including in gyms and restaurants.
Fauci said it has become "much clearer" that someone is likely at greater risk if they're in an indoor space where there's less air circulation and "any degree of aerosolization."
