A study conducted by a group of researchers in UK, Norway and the US involving 2000 people. They studied the transmission of COVID-19 in people and discovered that taller people with a height of more than 6 feet are more likely to catch the viral infection via aerosol transmission as compared to short people.
Researchers believe that microdroplets turn into aerosols and fly a certain height above the ground until gravity pulls it down. The longer they stay in the air, the more infections they can cause. Taller people are more susceptible to aerosol transmission, the study stated.
