Corona is airborne, can float in air particles. That’s according to a report in The Lancet, one of the world’s most popular medical journals. Now the question may arise, how to spread the corona floating in the air? Does this mean that the virus is spread by sneezing or coughing or droplets from the mouth of the infected patient? That’s not always the case, researchers say. But the virus will not spread from the sneeze and cough of the corona patient. The researchers explained in detail how the virus can spread in the air and how the infection can enter the body. He also gave instructions to stay healthy.
First, scientists have been saying for so long that viral strains may be present in water droplets coming out of people’s noses and mouths. When these water particles come in contact with air, they are filled with water vapor to form larger water particles. This is called air droplet. Floating on this droplet can spread viral strains. Researchers at The Lancet say that it is not possible for large water droplets or droplets to survive in the air for long periods of time. Because no heavy object can float for long under the influence of gravity. So it is wrong to think that the large droplets that are formed due to sneezing or coughing will spread the virus far and wide.
Second, the question is, how is the virus going so far? Researchers say that the viral strain is spreading by making small particles floating in the air as a base. The diameter of small particles in the air is not more than five micrometers. So it is possible for the virus particles to spread far and wide by floating in these particles. Simply put, even if you are more than six feet away from an infected patient, the virus particles can still float in the air and enter through your nose or mouth. Just as polluted particles floating in the air enter our bodies every day with our breathing, this is also the case. According to scientists, SARS-COV-2 virus particles can spread in the air, which means that it can enter the body with the air. So we need to be much more careful. Wearing a face-mask is mandatory, it is very good to have a face-shield or face-cover in the crowd. Mutual distance must be kept and cleanliness must be observed.
If the infected patient’s sneezing and coughing does not spread? The Lancet report says it also spreads, but not over long distances. If you are very close to an infected patient, water droplets or droplets of the virus can enter the body. These droplets have a diameter of about 100 micrometers, cannot float in the air for long, and fall to the ground. Rather than talk about it, small aerosols can last longer.
Researchers say that asymptomatic patients do not have symptoms of sneezing or coughing, so how is the infection spreading from them? The reason is this aerosol. 33 to 59 percent more infections can spread from asymptomatic patients. Talking, shouting, singing, etc. can spread more than the infection is spreading in the patient’s sneeze. When talking, small water particles come out a lot. Virus particles can spread by sheltering them. Source: The Wall
