THE LATEST EVENTS AT SNS
Hear and see how invisible droplets emit during speech. Researchers used laser technology to light up the spray of otherwise unseen particles that become "aerosolized"during speech. Don't have time? The left video is short, or go to 01:35 in the longer video on the right to see the magnified spray.

QUOTE OF PRIOR WEEKS
Asked to help explain the status of persons who feel recovered, but still test positive, Dr. Fauci explained that the virus replicates in you, but the test tells if the virus is there, not if it is still replicating. The body may be suppressing replication, but still be infected with viral particles called nucleotides. The body must clear that.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"If we had 60% of the population wearing masks that were 60% effective--you could effectively end the epidemic based on some modeling that has been done," says Gottlieb. "People don't wear masks appropriately--not everyone has high quality masks. There is more supply in the market, so people can go out and try to get higher quality masks right now."
--Former FDA Commissioner, Stott Gottlieb, CNBC SPECIAL Q&A, June 17

The Virus Up Close: How Scientists Visualize Microscopic Enemies.
Visual artist Austin Athman colorizes a SARS-CoV-2 image at NIH-NIAID’s Rocky Mountain Lab.
You might have seen beautifully colored images of magnified viruses and bacteria in news stories and on the covers of scientific journals – particularly the SARS-CoV-2 images (the virus that causes COVID-19) appearing everywhere. While the
Image of Novel SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, magnified 30,000 to 90,000 times their actual size, emerging from the surface of cells (gray) cultured in the lab, after duplication.
This scanning electron microscope image shows Novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (orange)—also known as 2019-nCoV—the virus that causes COVID-19—isolated from a patient in the U.S., emerging from the surface of cells (gray) cultured in the lab.
