CDC defined infectious respiratory droplet transmission as different than airborne

Here are CDC's definitions for the different modes of spread of infectious agents.  Scroll down to IB3b and c and you will see that CDC has defined droplet transmission as a form of contact transmission. This may be CDC's technical justification for insisting that Ebola does not spread via the airborne route, when there is ample evidence it may spread via airborne droplets.
