Coronavirus transmission channels

Confirmed by Academician Zhong Nanshan, the transmission route of the new coronavirus is human to human. [7] There are three main ways of spreading coronavirus, as follows [8]:


(1) oral solution


Coronavirus can be spread through the fluid in the mouth. When normal people have contact with oral corticovirus patients, they may be infected with coronavirus.


(2) Droplets


Droplets are also one of the methods of coronavirus transmission. Sometimes in the subway and in public spaces, people infected with coronavirus may spread the virus through a sneeze.


(3) Contact spread


If the normal person and the coronavirus patient have too close contact, they may also be infected with coronavirus.


How to prevent effectively?
