WHO confirms airborne transmission of coronavirus possible during medical procedures


On Thursday, the World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed that coronavirus could be transmitted through the air as well during the medical procedures, which generates aerosols. A group of 200 scientists from 32 countries had written an open letter to the WHO last week, urging them to change their guidelines on the spread of the virus. They provided the global health organization with evidence after which WHO finally accepted that airborne transmission of the disease is possible.

WHO has said they are also investigating if the virus can spread through aerosols in the absence of aerosols generating procedures.

The basic transmission of airborne transmission is that the virus can spread through the air if there is the dissemination of the droplet nuclei(aerosols), which remain infectious while suspended in the air over long distances and time.
