What good is Pence, Harris plexiglass? – CDC said today, ‘C19 can linger in the air for hours’

Plexiglass will separate US Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris at Wednesday’s debate, a campaign aide said, reflecting changes aimed at protecting the rivals against the spread of the coronavirus.

Revolving facts: CDC now says, C19 can linger in the air for hours – social distancing obsolete?

The Commission on Presidential Debates has reportedly approved the plans, with backing of the Cleveland Clinic which is helping set debate health protocols, after President Donald Trump announced Friday that he had contracted Covid-19.

Amid negotiations over debate terms, Harris, a US senator from California who is Democrat Joe Biden’s running mate, was said to have supported the plexiglass addition while Pence’s camp opposed.”Plexiglass will be used” between the candidates on stage in Salt Lake City, Utah, a Harris campaign aide told AFP Monday.

Politico first reported the barrier news, also writing that the commission changed the layout so that the candidates will be seated 13 feet (four meters) apart instead of seven feet.
