COVID-19 Is Airborne! Japanese Doctor Edition

A video showing a Japanese doctor proving that COVID-19 is airborne has been circulating with this message (we placed a HOAX overlay to avoid its abuse) :

Is important to wear mask as covid19 is finally certified to be airborne. Japanese doctor using sophisticated camera capture the virus is airborne. Their camera capture 0.1 micro (10’000 times to 1 micro milimeter)

Japanese COVID-19 Airborne Hoax Debunked!

The Japanese video appears to be a genuine video, but does not show that the coronavirus is airborne.

It appears to be a video about micro droplets that we produce when we sneeze or talk. There is no mention of COVID-19 at all in the video.

In this video, we will explain to you why this claim is completely untrue, with some help from Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, the head of WHO’s emerging diseases and zoonosis unit!

WHO also addressed this false claim, stating that :

The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or speaks. These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air. They quickly fall on floors or surfaces. 

You can be infected by breathing in the virus if you are within 1 metre of a person who has COVID-19, or by touching a contaminated surface and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth before washing your hands.

In short, COVID-19 is NOT an airborne virus. This is yet another fake COVID-19 story designed to scare people for shits and giggles.
