An early teacher of mine said, "Science can only prove what is not true not what is true.'. Science takes the available info, applies the Scientific Method, and an explanation is offered. It may change with new data, new tools, Particle physics. Smallest was the atom, the electron,then quark and lepton. Now,with CERN, perhaps the Highs Boson.

This makes sense because scientists didn't know the viral droplets can survive 1 to 2 hours in the air. Other stuff: take a hot bath, use a hair dryer up your nose/mouth, 5G is spreading the virus. Pure bunk a rational mind may easily dismiss.
