According tomedia BGR, the new crown updates that people receive regularly each day often include reminders of actions they can take to protect their health and those of others, such as keeping social distance and wearing masks. Health experts are beginning to warn that there is a simple activity that can help limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This activity is to control the volume of our speech and not to speak loudly around others — because it can spread new coronavirus particles.
These experts include Jose Jimenez, a professor at the University of Colorado At Boulder who studies the spread of the disease, who recently told The Atlantic that people need to stop talking loudly in public places.
“If we talk less in public, or less loudly, every route of transmission of the virus will be reduced,” Jimenez said. “It’s just a very clear fact. There is no dispute about that. “
A previous study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that group singing activities such as church choirs have the potential to spread viral droplets. The CDC study looked specifically at a church choir and found that after a 2.5-hour choir exercise involving 61 people with symptoms, there were 32 confirmed cases, 20 of which “may have been secondary COVID-19 cases.” This eventually resulted in the hospitalization of three patients and the death of two patients.
“During practice, close proximity (within 6 feet) and singing behavior may promote transmission,” the CDC study said. “
There have also been studies that have shown the opposite — that speaking softly is associated with a lower risk level of new coronavirus. This is based on a study on social distance and its effects, published in the medical journal BMJ.
According to the latest data from Johns Hopkins University, there have been more than 6.11 million new crown-related deaths in the United States so far, in addition to more than 185,000 new crown-related deaths.
