What we are not afraid to say about Ebola virus - at virology blog
Re: TWiV 302: The sky is falling -
"There is a definition of aerosol transmission; here is Medscape's: Aerosol transmission has been defined as person-to-person transmission of pathogens through the air by means of inhalation of infectious particles. Particles up to 100 μm in size are considered inhalable (inspirable). These aerosolized particles are small enough to be inhaled into the oronasopharynx, with the smaller, respirable size ranges (eg, < 10 μm) penetrating deeper into the trachea and lung (Figure).[23,24] Aerosols are emitted not only by "aerosol-generating procedures,"[19] but may also be transmitted whenever an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks, or exhales. Pathogens transmitted by respiratory aerosols can travel short or long range from the source depending on the size and shape of the particles, the initial velocity (eg, cough vs exhalation), and environmental conditions (eg, humidity, airflow). We do our best to talk about viruses spreading by aerosol. Sometimes we slip up, but we do understand the..." - Vincent Racaniello

"Correct, the current test uses PCR with pan-enterovirus primers, followed by sequencing to determine the genotype. A melt curve analysis as you suggest should work as well." - Vincent Racaniello
