Scientists have identified the safest place at the table during a pandemic

Japanese scientists use a supercomputer to simulate the spread of coronavirus while talking to people for

one table. Thanks to this, the researchers figured out where it is safest to sit in such a situation.

The scientists model had two connected tables.60 square centimeters - claimed to be the standard for restaurants. Four people were sitting at the table. As it turned out, when a person speaks, 5% of the drops that he exhales fall on his interlocutor. At the same time, the person who sits side by side gets five times more drops than the one who is opposite. The person sitting diagonally from the speaker will "suffer" least of all.

The researchers also said that the risk of infection when sitting side by side can be reduced by not looking at each other while talking.
