An outbreak of coronavirus that infected more than 1,500 people at a German slaughterhouse may have been spread by "circulating air".
Experts fear COVID-19 can be spread inside facilities like the Toennies meat plant in Guetersloh because of the systems they use to pump out cool, moist air inside enclosed rooms.
Martin Exner, director of the Institute for Hygiene and Public Health at the University of Bonn, said: "What has not been known so far is that under such conditions circulating air can keep an aerosol moving.
"And that this is another risk factor that has been overlooked so far. That is the crucial message I have to report here now."
Mr Exner said outbreaks at meat plants in Germany, the US, Britain and France showed the need to reconsider how such factories are set up.

Oh ya and the sky is falling...... did I forget anything?
Yeah you did......it’s all Trump’s fault.
Trump is gonna kill us all.
So his " may have " ( aerosols movement ) is now a crucial message .
Every one of these speculations covers the fact that if , or rather when the truth comes out , there's no comebacks citing straight lies . From public health authorities , no less .
No more workers showing up , no more animals deemed fit for consumption , people avoiding farms like the plague and giving up meat , no more incentive for farmers to herd them together for profits , mass culls potentially , huge losses of revenues , supermarkets losing a major line , sudden demand for non meat alternatives ...

Nothing personal at all DBC is a thoughtful and intelligent poster
You may have pre-existing personal issues with the OP, or whatever, but they are right to speculate in the article that this is airborne. (We have known it was airborne since December, if you can look past the propaganda of the WHO at that time ... oh, and don't forget the cover-ups of the CCP last Fall either.)
Also, there is a pretty good analysis of the slaughterhouse / meatpacking industrial setup. There is good information to be had here if you can ignore your own biases. Meatpacking infrastructure is at risk worldwide, in particular.
Where have some of the largest COVID case clusters happened in the US? (hint: meatpacking plants!)
There is a high concentration where sewage is 4°C, which is the ideal temperature for it to be stabled and presumably activated. And meatpacking plants are often at 4°C.
