A horrifying slow motion video shows the incredible trajectory of a sneeze that may be carrying the coronavirus – up to 27 feet away. US scientists filmed a clip of a healthy person during a violent exhalation, slowed down from 25 seconds to a minute and a half. They found that found viral droplets expelled in coughs and sneezes can travel in a moist, warm atmosphere at speeds of between 33 and 100 feet per second. This creates an infectious and'turbulent' gas cloud capable of reaching somewhere between 23 feet to 27 feet (seven metres to eight metres) away. A moist and warm atmosphere within the turbulent gas cloud allows the contained droplets to evade evaporation for much longer than usual.
