Perhaps the best summary yet of the importance of airborne transmission for COVID and respiratory pathogens more generally. Extraordinarily clear & powerful. Implications are enormous #Covid19Aus 1/

Airborne transmission of respiratory viruses | Science…
“Additional measures must be implemented for mitigating aerosol transmission …, with particular attention to ventilation, airflows, air filtration, UV disinfection, and mask fit. These interventions are critical tools for ending the current pandemic.” 2/
The significance in fully embracing mitigating airborne transmission is that the better we do this, the lower the vax rate to re-open. It’s not overstating things to say we need a #VentilationRevolution for COVID. It’s the major missing link in the ‘plus’ in #VaccinesPlus. 3/end

Much talk to the effect 'we have the policies it's now up to the community to do the right thing'. Putting aside the notion that stronger restrictions send a strong psychological signal (eg, masks on when you leave the house) - the science of influencing behavior is neglected.
But there is a bit going on, such as the Optimise program @BurnetInstitute…
Here's just one example, improving testing uptake through behavioral science. It's not about blaming and shaming, but working with the people you're trying to influence, ie, not telling, but asking different communities what would work for them!…
