According to the WHO, more research is urgently needed on such cases to determine their significance for coronavirus transmission. The international organization does not yet want to confirm that the virus is spreading through the air. The WHO has established that you can be infected through direct or indirect contact with contaminated surfaces or through close contact with infected people. They spread the virus through their saliva, while breathing or through droplets released when they cough, sneeze, speak or sing.
It was recently announced that hundreds of scientists from 32 countries want the WHO to review the guidelines. They argue that there is strong evidence that the coronavirus can also infect humans through aerosols. Whether it’s spread by large droplets that get into the air after sneezing, or by much smaller exhaled droplets that reach an entire room, the coronavirus is carried by the air and can infect humans when inhaled, the scientists believe.
