Aerosols are one of the most likely transmission routes of the SARS -CoV-2 virus causing COVID -19. By using state-of-the-art models and measurements, we provide simple theoretical estimates of the evolution of the suspended viral dose associated with respiratory droplets. We will discuss the time scales and droplet sizes characteristic of coughing and speaking, applying these estimates to three canonical fluid mechanics problems for insight on aerosol/droplet transmission.
