The actual method of coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) transmission has remained a mystery. Previously considered to spread by contact with surfaces, epidemiologists have shown that countries whose citizens donned masks throughout the epidemic were less afflicted. However, there was no quantifiable evidence that the infection was spread through coronavirus particles in the air. However, the capability of Covid transmission across the radio has already been proven.
The airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 was confirmed in a study conducted by scientists from CSIR-CCMB, Hyderabad, and CSIR-IMTech, Chandigarh, in collaboration with hospitals in Hyderabad and Mohali. The research results have been published in the Journal of Aerosol Science.
They discovered that the virus was regularly detected in the air around Covid-19 patients and that the rate of the positive rose as the number of patients on the premises grew. The virus was found in both ICU and non-ICU portions of hospitals, implying that patients released the virus into the air regardless of the severity of the infection.
The researchers discovered live coronavirus in the air, infecting living cells and traveling across large distances. To prevent the spread of the sickness, scientists recommend that people continue to wear masks.
