    The sneeze is depicted as horizontal, presumably for the camera. In a real sneeze, the head first tends to first tilt back, but during the actual sneeze, tends to point downwards. This means that large droplets tend to move toward the floor. Would have been nice to see a P2/N95 mask. Apart from that, a useful paper.
