With the rumours making rounds that the pandemic coronavirus is an airborne disease, the World Health Organisation (WHO), has faulted the report, saying that the covid-19 is not an airborne disease.
WHO took to her official twitter handle to announce that: “COVID19 is not airborne. The coronavirus is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks.
To protect yourself: keep 1m distance from others, disinfect surfaces frequently, wash/rub your Open hands, avoid physical contact.
“These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air. They quickly fall on floors or surfaces.
“You can be infected by breathing in the virus if you are within one meter of a person who has COVID-19.
“You can be infected by touching a contaminated surface and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth before washing your hands.’’
“To protect yourself, keep at least one meter distance from others and disinfect surfaces that are touched frequently.
“Regularly clean your hands thoroughly and avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose’’.
