Scientists in the United States believe that coronavirus can be transmitted by a sick person, not only by sneezing or coughing, but also during a conversation, and perhaps even just by breathing.
It is reported by CNN.
“The results of the studies do not refute the possibility of aerosolization of the virus during the normal respiratory process,” said a letter from the American epidemiologist Harvey Feinberg in response to a request from the White House.
The study shows that aerosol particles that a person releases into the environment during a conversation and, possibly, even while breathing, can also transmit a coronavirus.
“The research results currently available confirm the possibility of dissemination [коронавируса] thanks to bioaerosols formed directly during the expiration of sick patients “, indicates the document.

According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus spreads from person to person in small droplets that form when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
As indicated, worldwide as of the evening of April 3, more than one million 79 thousand cases of COVID-19 coronavirus infection have been recorded, while more than 58 thousand people have died and nearly 228 thousand people have recovered .
