Coronavirus may be the end of the “Happy Birthday’ song

The coronavirus may kill the “Happy Birthday” song. According to a Swedish study, singing spreads more droplets containing the virus than talking. The enunciation of consonants releases very large droplets and experts say the letters B and P – like in “Happy Birthday”, are the biggest aerosol spreaders. However, the study’s co-author, Jacob Löndahl says that a face mask will catch most of the aerosols and droplets.
