OK, I checked it out. COVID-19 is not technically an Airborne Disease by definition it is a Droplet Disease.
On the other hand the primary mode of infection of COVID19 is Airborne Transmission.
Although Airborne Disease and Airborne Transmission use the same word, they are not the same thing.
So when someone says, "I'm not wearing a mask because COVID-19 is not an airborne disease." A person could counter with, "While you are technically correct, airborne transmission is it's primary mode of transmission."
COVID is not a contact disease either, but it can also be transmitted by contact with an infected person.
