Another report by the WHO which came on Tuesday acknowledged obedience emerging from the airborne spread of the novel coronavirus after a group of scientists urged the Global body to update its guidance on how the respiratory disease passes between people.

The possibility of airborne transmission in public settings especially in very specific conditions crowded closed poorly ventilated this can become a major threat that can also infect a vast number of people surrounding them and can also badly suspect them of the coronavirus.

This is the reason the government has strongly advised all offers to maintain social distancing and according to WHO people should maintain a distance of at least 3.3 feet that is 1 meter.

This includes not only the physical distancing, but it also includes the use of masks where ever appropriate in certain settings, especially where you can’t maintain physical distancing and especially for the Healthcare workers.

The COVID-19 is respiratory less with similar symptoms like influenza flu and the cases of seasonal flu are said to increase during the monsoon months.

Some of the previous research studies I have highlighted that Influenza and SARS  viruses thrive in lower temperatures and humidity.
