How is the Covid-19 coronavirus spread?
A person can get Covid-19 coronavirus from contact with someone who is infected with the virus. The disease can spread from person to person through droplets from the nose or mouth that are thrown out when an infected person coughs or exhales.
These droplets fall on objects and surfaces around the person, so other people can get Covid-19 coronavirus if they touch these objects or surfaces and then touch their eyes, nose, or mouth.
They can also be spread by inhaling droplets that a person with COVID-19 has spread by coughing or exhaling. So it is essential to stay more than 1 meter (3 feet) away from an ill person.
