Epidemiologists stated that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) disease can be transmitted from person to person at a distance of four meters. According to them, this is confirmed by new research from the American Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The distance of four meters is more than twice the norm of social distance, which is 1.5 meters. The scientists recalled that the coronavirus 2019-nCoV can also stay in the air from 30 minutes to three hours, and on the surface of objects – up to several days. Thus, its transmission can take place not only by airborne droplets but also by contact.
