The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said it erroneously published guidance that indicated COVID-19 was "airborne."
The CDC in Atlanta claimed it originally published the guidance "in error", following "a pressure campaign" from the World Health Organization (WHO).
Health organizations absurdly claimed the virus can linger in the air for hours and travel 26 feet.
The new CDC update confirms the virus doesn't linger in a viral cloud that infects people who walk through it.
On Monday, the CDC updated its website to reflect that the "virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person" in close contact with each other.
The CDC's stunning reversal helps explain why a so-called "deadly" virus doesn't sicken a majority of people who are infected.

Eugenist Bill Gates is furious with U.S. President Donald Trump for cutting $500 million in funding to the World Health Organization (WHO).
In a tweet on Tuesday, the Microsoft co-founder slammed Trump's decision to cut WHO funding, saying "Halting funding for the World Health Organization during a world health crisis is as dangerous as it sounds. Their work is slowing the spread of Covid-19 and if that work is stopped no other organization can replace them."
Trump announced Tuesday he was halting $500 million in funding after criticizing The WHO's handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump said the WHO failed investigate early signs of the virus' ability to spread from one human to another and failed to call out China for its lack of transparency.
