COVID-19 Can Spread While Breathing And Speaking : American Scientists

Corona in India

A high-level panel from US says that the corona virus epidemic can spread through breathing and talking as well. The panel suggested on Wednesday that the disease-causing virus can be airborne (present in air). It is spreading among people much easier and farther than before.

Scientists say that when people exhale, the virus remains alive in the ultrafine mist produced by it. “The current research is limited, the results of available studies showing the spread of the virus caused by breathing,” said Dr. Harvey Finberg, chairman of the Standing Committee on Science, Engineering and Medicine, in a letter.

This committee assists the US government in making science and policy decisions related to emerging infectious diseases and other public health hazards. This can explain why the virus is spreading so fast and a proof has also been found, said a virologist. In such a situation, it becomes extremely important to maintain a complete lockdown and social distance.

Airborne viruses and bacteria are more contagious and of concern especially in highly populated countries like India. So far, the number of infected with Covid-19 in India has been 2547 while the number of dead has reached 68.
