I've read an alarming number of comments, on reddit mainly, saying everyone needs to literally stay indoors and that the act of going outside puts you at risk of contraction and death.

Yes, I get that there is evidence that it can be aerosol and hang around in an enclosed space and thus the need to not share air with strangers. But the only way i see an issue with being outdoors is if you are in close proximity to someone and they cough or sneeze or touch you and you are within striking distance.

I completely agree. I wasn't using it as a source of information, just a place to discuss things in a lowbrow manner. It's just that I've seen it more than once so I was curious if it had any bearing in reality even though I was sure it did not. Also, I was challenged more than once, quite harshly I might add, for outlining what I thought was the sheer stupidity of the suggestion that equated to "the air will literally kill you. you are definitely going to get infected if you go outside and if you get infected, you'll surely die".
