Little or large droplets that’s the question. Now. Because our knowledge on the corona virus is still evolving and what measures are best taken to contain the spread of the virus is still hotly debated.
Irrespective of the exact causes and government guidance following the advice from experts or – like in the US – completely in contradiction with it, there is the question of rules or risk based guidance.
If a government trusts it’s citizens shouldn’t it be enough to explain the risks, give advise and only issue a few rules. The underlying premise is that citizens are responsible and knowledgable.
If a government issues detailed regulations and follows a ‘command and control’ policy, it’s basically indicating that it doesn’t trust its citizens.
