Coronavirus is not airborne, WHO debunks myth
A myth which suggested that coronavirus is airborne and can remain in the air for 8 hours has been debunked by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
This was contained in a tweet shared by the international health agency.
The agency stated that the virus is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks.
It added that the droplets are too heavy to hang in the air and falls quickly on the floor and surfaces.
Some of the protective measures the WHO listed include keeping 1m distance from other people, disinfecting surfaces, washing of hands.
