WHO announces; COVID-19 is not AIRBORNE

 As the world continues to come to terms with the devastating effect of COVID-19 pandemic, the World Health Organization (WHO) has debunked rumors and myths that the novel virus is airborne. The World Health Organization (WHO) made this disclosure via its official social media handle.


The agency said the virus that causes COVID-19 is majorly 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. “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.’’



WHO, however, advised people to keep themselves safe by practising physical distancing. 

“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’’ According to the agency, drinking alcohol does not protect people against COVID-19 and can be dangerous. “Frequent or excessive alcohol consumption can increase your risk of health problems,’’ WHO cautioned.
