“The results of this survey in terms of associations between height and diagnosis suggest downward droplet transmission is not the only transmission mechanism and aerosol transmission is possible,” Professor Evan Kontopantelis, of the University of Manchester, told the outlet.

“This has been suggested by other studies, but our method of confirmation is novel,” he added.

“Though social distancing is still important, because transmission by droplets is still likely to occur, it does suggest that mask-wearing may be just as — if not more — effective in prevention.

I remember thinking “HOLY SHIT, IM IN”. But that was many years ago when I was just starting out in Hollywood with no foundation of global box office strength or any real acting experience to even pull it off.The role, of course, went to Johnny Depp, who at that time was the biggest star in the world.
