The World Health Organisation (WHO) has debunked the assertion that COVID-19 is airborne.
The WHO is a tweet, informed that coronavirus 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 explained.
The WHO further explained that “you can be infected by breathing in the virus if you are within 1 metre 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.”
The organisation, however, advised that in protecting yourself, keep at least a 1 metre distance from others and disinfect surfaces frequently that are touched frequently. Also, regularly wash or rub your hands thoroughly and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
