Well a look around the web and (1) many sites cite your statement so it is true - and also the contact, as well.

Various comments went from ignoring the contact method (which even recently was touted as important on media) through 'some thing it may be spread as an aerosol' as an alternative to the contact methods and finally some ignore the contact methods altogether.

Well - by even simple logic, a moist sneeze would spread the flu. Just breath in through your nose, and of course, settling on your eyes. In that way I absolutely stand corrected.

What bothers me about the whole thing is that there's far too much "flexibility" in reporting.


Eg: some months ago it was noted that persons with blood type A are more likely to get a severe case of COVID - and then that sort of disappeared. Last night, however, the report noted that those with blood type O are less likely to have a severe reaction and that (in the US) type A is the second most prevalent blood type. As seen in the US, government controlled organizations run by appointees can modify reality to suit the need of those who appointed them, so

common sense puts your post as valid but the recent state of affairs and variations in the attribution lead me to think that it's being changed. Hopefully, math, chemistry, and physics will not fall pray to this feeling that appeasement is a valid data point in a study.
