COVID-19 Not Airborne, Says WHO

Monday 30 March 2020

The world health organisation (WHO) has debunked the news making the round that coronavirus is airborne.

According to a statement released by the health agency, the droplets from an infected person are too heavy to hang in the air, thus they fall on the floor as soon as the infected person sneezes or speaks.

The statement reads:

“These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air. They quickly fall on floors or surfaces,” it wrote.

“You can be infected by breathing in the virus if you are within one meter of a person who has COVID-19.

“To protect yourself, keep at least one meter distance from others and disinfect surfaces that are touched frequently,” it added.

“Regularly clean your hands thoroughly and avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose’’.

“Frequent or excessive alcohol consumption can increase your risk of health problems,’’ WHO said.
