Aerosol transmission​

In order for the virus to be spread without being coughed or sneezed in large drops of liquid, it has to somehow be able to suspend in the air for long enough to infect passersby. And that’s another complicating factor in figuring out transmission.

Things used by Patients ​

There's one other route that's thought to play a role in the spread of COVID-19: contact transmission. In this situation, viral particles emitted from the respiratory tract of an infected individual land on a surface. Then, another person touches that object, then touches their nose, mouth or eyes. The virus then enters into the body, infecting the second person.
