AGENCY: According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), corona infections are more likely to be spread from the air than from nearby people. A CDC study claims that coronavirus (Covid-19) infections are now spreading from the air.
According to the CDC, corona virus can stay in the air for a long time like smoke and the specks coming out of the mouth of an infected person can reach up to 6 feet through the air. Scientists claim that it can then be easily and quickly transmitted to other people.
According to a study published in the Medical Journal of Science by a group of American scientists, airborne infections have been spreading more recently than close ones.
Although the rate of infection should be reduced due to physical distance to avoid infection, air is considered to be the main source of infection as it is comparatively increasing.
The CDC’s study found that viruses that can survive in the air for a few seconds to a few hours increase their risk by reaching areas with low ventilation.
It is said that at least 3,000 drops of cough and more than 30,000 drops of saliva are released into the air at the same time and the infection spreads at a rapid rate.
Earlier, a group of more than 240 scientists from 23 countries claimed that the corona virus had spread from the air. Even the WHO estimates that one in 10 people may have a corona infection.
