How COVID-19 is transmitted?

COVID-19 is spread through the transmission mechanism, particularly when the infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets contaminate people, objects, and surfaces within the vicinity of the infected person. When people touch these objects or surfaces, they transfer the virus to themselves once they touch their faces, particularly the eyes, nose, or mouth. The social distancing of a meter faraway from an infected person is vital to preventing infection. The virus has been found to survive on surfaces for several hours, even up to many days. Therefore, practicing frequent hand washing upon coming into contact with these surfaces, i.e., door handles, railings, elevator buttons, etc. may help to stop yourself from getting the virus. Your cellphone, money, and keyboards can inadvertently carry the virus if you’ve inherited contact with the virus from one among these carrier surfaces. Disinfect them often.
