New Facts Emerge

The World Health Organization has acknowledged there is emerging evidence that the coronavirus can be spread by tiny particles suspended in the air.

The airborne transmission could not be ruled out in crowded, closed or poorly ventilated settings, an official has said. We know that Covid-19 can be transmitted via droplets emitted when people cough or sneeze.

Droplets fall onto surfaces – that’s why handwashing has been identified as a key prevention measure. But now 239 scientists are saying there is also strong evidence to suggest the virus can also spread in the air: through much tinier particles that float around for hours after people talk, or breathe out.

In the community, if we’re thinking about aerosol transmission being a particular risk, then we need to think about how to prevent larger super spreading events, larger outbreaks and those occur in indoor environments with poor ventilation, with crowding and with prolonged close contact.
