If only all such droplets were so big.

I am rather confused by what this study is trying to tell us that isn’t what we’ve already known about how every other virus spreads in dry winter air?

It’s one thing to acknowledge that “why winter is flu season” isn’t common knowledge and write an article to change that and point out the same is true for any virus in similar airborne droplets. But to claim it’s new information? I’m going to assume there’s (as usual) a big disconnect between the study and what the press is saying about the study.
