New evidence suggests COVID19 is airborne: Here’s what you can do

 

Up until now, scientists and experts had said that SARS-COV2, COVID19 causing virus, is spread via droplet transmission. Recent evidence from Wuhan hospital now suggests that SARS-COV2 can actually suspend in aerosol (much smaller droplets) and stay in the air for much longer (>2 hours), making the air as one of the modes of transmission of this disease. In other words, this means that you can contract the disease simply by inhaling the surrounding air (for e.g. in a hospital) and would no longer require someone to sneeze or cough nearby. Research is still ongoing to determine whether the SARS-COV2 suspended as an aerosol is still infectious. But if you are following social distancing measures recommended by the CDC or WHO, there is no need to worry or panic. Here’s what you can do to be cautious:

 

  1. Wear a mask and possibly gloves: if you are planning to head outside, even for groceries or a simple walk, make sure to have protective gear on. Wear a mask and gloves (if possible). Refer to our guide on selecting the most suitable masks in this need of the hour. 
  2. Wash your hands more often: Set reminders on your phone to wash hands more often. Make sure to wash hands when entering a new facility or returning home. Use disinfectants or hand sanitizer when washing hands is not possible
  3. Practice personal hygiene: Wash clothes. Keep the clothes and shoes or slippers you wear at home separate from the ones you wear outside. 
  4. Make best friends with wireless technology: For daily use things like a thermometer, it is best to get the new infrared thermometer which allows contactless measurement of temperature.
