One of those papers that needs to be read.
Very clear discussion.
My take home impression is this is a really infectious little bugger and the standard PPE is not that effective. And these risks apply to the assistant as well as the person performing the intubation.
On a more societal/political level would be fascinating if this sort of incidence happened in other workplace hazardous exposures here would be royal commissions and demonstrations in he street.
