The COVID19 is not transmitted by air

COVID19 is not transmitted by air,  according to a tweet from the WHO (World Health Organization).

Among the information they gave on March 28, 2020, they advise starting caring for ourselves to avoid contagion.


  • Keeping 1 meter (minimum) distance from other people.
  • Disinfecting frequent contact surfaces.
  • Constantly wash and disinfect your hands.
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

It is important to emphasize that, in their statement, they attach an image that says: “The virus that causes COVID19 is transmitted mainly through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks. These droplets are too heavy to be left in the air. They fall very quickly to the floor or other surfaces. You can become infected by inhaling the virus if you are within 1 meter of the person who has COVID19, or by touching a contaminated surface and then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth before washing your hands.”

Additionally, we must stay at home to avoid contagion and, therefore, the spread. This is how we make a huge contribution to the world and we can flatten the curve significantly. In case it is necessary to go out or one´s boss does not allow you to stay at home and you must go to work, upon arrival, the ideal is to immediately bathe and change the clothes we were on the street with. If we cannot bathe, at least we must wash our hands, neck, and face very well, and if glasses are used, also disinfect them, it can be cleaned with alcohol.
