A lot of particles in the contrails deposited by planes into our skies too...makes you wonder if they knew the public was becoming aware and put this 'study' out.
Don’t Look Up: ‘Astonishing Number’ Of Viruses Float Down On Us From The Sky

VANCOUVER — This study will make you think twice about stepping outside for a breath of fresh air. A team of scientists from around the world confirmed millions of viruses rising into the atmosphere, traveling — sometimes for thousands of miles — and falling back down to the surface.
The study, carried out by researchers from the U.S., Canada, and Spain, is the first of its kind to confirm viruses are being swept up into the free toposphere — the layer of atmosphere between the area where Earth’s weather systems develop — and below the stratosphere, where airplanes fly.“Fresh air” may not be so fresh after all. A new study finds that millions of viruses and bacteria are swept into the atmosphere and travel long distances before eventually falling back down to earth.
The numbers are “astonishing” the researchers say, but remember, a virus is a tiny particle, little more than a strand of DNA and a mechanism for attaching to organic matter.
“Every day, more than 800 million viruses are deposited per square metre above the planetary boundary layer — that’s 25 viruses for each person in Canada,” says University of British Columbia virologist Curtis Suttle, lead author of the study, in a media release.
Scientists have been finding genetically similar viruses in disparate parts of the planet.
“Roughly 20 years ago we began finding genetically similar viruses occurring in very different environments around the globe,” says Suttle. “This preponderance of long-residence viruses travelling the atmosphere likely explains why—it’s quite conceivable to have a virus swept up into the atmosphere on one continent and deposited on another.”
Suttle and his team found that viruses and bacteria are often swept up into the atmosphere by attaching themselves to particles in soil dust and sea spray. The researchers used platforms in Spain’s Sierra Nevada Mountains to detect how many viruses and bacteria were settling there every day. They found billions of viruses and tens of millions of bacteria being deposited there per square meter every day.
“Bacteria and viruses are typically deposited back to Earth via rain events and Saharan dust intrusions. However, the rain was less efficient removing viruses from the atmosphere,” adds study authorIsabel Reche, a microbial ecologist from the University of Granada.
The full study was published in International Society for Microbial Ecology Journal.

CYA is one of satan's favorite MOs!! Do that bad stuff, and hide and lie it away!! Yup, lie, hide, minimize, deny, and blame! Am I missing any? Ended up marrying someone who does all these things daily!! I know now it was part of my training for things still yet to come! Kristin, this is what evil looks like, talks like, does like, and makes you feel like! Had it not happened this way for me, I would not be as knowledgeable as I am. Father never promised a rose garden! Didn't think some days I would get through the next day, it hurt so bad! NOW, I thank Father for letting it happen just the way He did!!!!!! Father wasn't messing around when He put me in boot camp training! It took 33 and a half years. Then one day a couple years back, He touched me, introduced me to PAM, and had me get to reading that letter so all the puzzle pieces of my life would make sense!! And for there to be enough time to have me prepared for what's to come! Father couldn't have done a more PERFECT job in my life! PERFECTION is one of His specialties. I'm upside down excited every day of thinking of the day when I will get to be before Him once again. I love my Heavenly Father more than I could ever express in any words now, and only with a brain working at sub par capacity. Alright, this got way too wordy on a viruses thread. I'll try to do better next time! Ran away with my thoughts today. :)
