Health desk. Coronaviruses can infect people up to a range of 27 percent. According to American researchers, when a corona sufferer sneezes or coughs, the virus present in droplets of saliva comes out of the mouth. It lives in the air and can travel up to 27 feet. This research has been done by researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) of America.

Need to do research on face mask

According to Laidia Bouroiba, associate professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has suggested increasing the social distancing to 2 feet. According to research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, how far surgical masks and N95 masks are effective in protecting against this danger has not been investigated so far.

Moisture prevents infection from spreading

Researchers say that if the environment is damp or the temperature is high, the virus infection can stop. Dr. Anthony Fauzi, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has questioned the research of MIT researchers. He says that this is not possible everywhere. This will only happen where people are sneezing too much.

More than 3,000 particles spit out at one time

Scientists said that when a person infected with a coronavirus coughs or sneezes, very fine particles of his spit are spread in the air. The infection spreads through these particles. More than 3,000 particles of spit are released at a time when a person sneezes. When there is moisture, the air condenses and in such a situation, there is no transmission of any virus or bacteria in it.
