How do we watch this?
If you have Facebook, go click on the words “an excellent conversation” in the photo caption.

I am writing to fully support And thank Dr. Fauci for his guidance, wisdom and scientific knowledge especially at a time when we need him most. Detractors are politically motivated and obviously do not have the health and well being of this country at heart as Dr Fauci certainly does. Please don’t be silenced!
To mitigate airborne transmission, whether aerosol or droplet, increasing the humidity in the area will make the aerosol denser and heavier that will either slow down or pull down the virus preventing further floating. Humidity has not been factored in in studies to mitigate the transmission indoors. This could be a major mitigating factor.
