is it true that if someone infected with the covid-19 sneezes it stays in the air for 3 hours? shouldn't they be spraying the air to kill it then?

COVID 19: What occurs in laboratory testing might not be born out exactly the same out of the lab. Aerosol generating procedures (AGPs) that ^ risk for transmission by air include open suctioning of airways, sputum induction, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, endotracheal intubation.
