As I said. Airborne.
Official lettering font. Video is legit.
For anyone who doesn't know, this is from a hilarious set of commercials that played in the 90s, all with the same format of someone who provides very technical knowledge who turns out to know nothing, but who "stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night"

The business guys set was also very funny.

I get that same sound in my head when people say "droplet".

I believe the actual aired version of the first commercial renamed the virus, but can't recall what they called it. Virus X or some such. Anyway enjoy the series.
I have no idea whom to credit
Some people love their cats more than public health loves children

Did they check the break room wasn't also an elevator, and that everybody pushed the same button?
Fruit tray?
Were they conducting ritual burial rites in the break room?

I hear ID doctors often like that one as well.

"endorsement of expert report" is not a legal term.

What would it mean? I am a non-expert but I wholeheartedly agree with the expert. ?

This pandemic is such failemic.

Opinion evidence is only admissible if you are qualified as an expert.

This sheet of paper is no different from a blank sheet of paper.

What silliness.
Inadmissible really and meaningless even if admitted.

I guarantee you the judges did not care.

One of these weird submissions even spelled medical wrong. Ha.

I guess this is the pandemic that causes us to realize that government public health, and infection control field (IPAC) are fundamentally useless.

Can't get masks for respiratory virus 19 months in.
