Science is reverse engineering the universe, which is complicated and obscure, at large scale and small. Most of its properties cannot be sensed directly by human beings, so instruments and mathematics are required. Experiments must be performed. Data needs to be accumulated and analyzed. Theories proposed and tested.
It takes time and patience and just when you think you have it figured out, some new twist comes along.
It's ongoing, fun and exciting, but hard work and not a walk in the park.

In situations like COVID19, which was a brand new virus, the scientists 
were using the scientific method to learn from what evidence they could 
gather how the virus was transmitted, how it affected humans. At the 
beginning they were pretty sure that it was transmitted in the air, and 
because the virus was so dangerous, they erred on the side of caution, 
assuming that there MIGHT BE transmission via contact with the virus on 
surfaces until they were able to rule it out, which took quite a while. 
Which is why we were letting packages sit for a couple of days, and 
wiping them down with bleach before touching them.

This wasn't a matter of what someone chose to believe, but rather a 
matter of what had not yet been learned!
