New Delhi: The World Health Organization has now accepted the possibility of coronavirus spreading through the air. Maria Van Kerkhove, the technical head of the World Health Organization, said that the possibility of the coronavirus staying in the air and spreading through the air cannot be ruled out. Especially in crowded places or places where air movement is not good, ie ventilation is less good. There the coronavirus can spread through the air.
However, the World Health Organization said that the expert will be consulted about this and new guidelines can also be released soon. Experts are of the opinion that even if the coronavirus spreads through the air, it is necessary to follow the rules of masking and social distancing. But 1 meter can be considered to increase the distance further.
239 scientists from 32 countries wrote an open letter to the World Health Organization, stating that the WHO should believe that the coronavirus can spread not only through breath but also from fine particles in the air.
Earlier, it has been believed that the sneezing or coughing or touching of one person causes the coronavirus infection to another person. But now it is believed that parts of the coronavirus may also be present in the air. So people have to be more careful.
The WHO said one more important thing that the coronavirus infection is spreading rapidly, although the epidemic is yet to reach its peak. According to the data of the World Health Organization, more than 10 million people worldwide are suffering from coronavirus and 5 lakh 35 thousand people have died from this disease.
