Another way to get infected: scientists made an alarming statement

Until now, it was believed that the virus spreads predominantly by sneezing and coughing. Now it turned out that one can become infected, even by standing next to the infected, since the infection actively occurs during breathing.

It was also found that in the air the virus can live for about three hours. That is why it is extremely important to wear masks for both healthy people and patients.

Previously, experts believed that the strain is in large drops of saliva, which fall on the surface when the patient sneezes and coughs. These drops are about one millimeter and can spread over several meters. The infection will occur with a probability of 99% if a healthy person touches the drops and then touches the face. The virus enters the body primarily through the mouth, nose and eyes, but can also through the ears.

Infection can only be avoided by wearing masks and maintaining a distance of 1-2 meters.
