Coronavirus – Fact Check: COVID-19 Is NOT Airborne

Unread post by Queenet »

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has stated that the virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or speaks.

These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air. They quickly fall on floors or surfaces, WHO stated.

“You can be infected by breathing in the virus if you are within 1 meter of a person who has COVID-19, or by touching a contaminated surface and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth before washing your hands.

“To protect yourself, keep at least 1 meter distance from others and disinfect surfaces that are touched frequently.

“Regularly clean your hands thoroughly and avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.

“The message spreading on social media that “COVID-19 is airborne” is INCORRECT. Help stop misinformation. Verify the facts before sharing”, WHO stated. ... -airborne/
