The World Health Organization (WHO) on Tuesday acknowledged for the first time that the coronavirus is spreading through the air. After this, the concerns of the people increased. He began to suffer the risk of infection. However, Indian experts say that there is no need to panic. The virus is temporarily present in the air. This does not mean that the virus is reaching everywhere and will infect everyone.
Rakesh Mishra, director of CSIR-Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB), said that the claim so far showed that it can move in the air in small droplets (droplets) of size less than five microns and larger. It will remain in the air for a few minutes in the form of drops.
He said that this clearly means that when a person speaks or breathes, some of the droplets go into the air and remain for some time, so people must wear masks for a long time.
Dr. Mishra said, as far as I understand, there is no need to make any major changes in the guidelines except for a few amendments. There is no need to panic that the virus is flying everywhere and it will infect everyone. It just means that people should wear masks for longer. Other precautions such as maintaining social distance should be continued to avoid the virus.
CSIR DG Shekhar Pandey says that when we speak, up to five microns drops and can remain in the air. In such a situation, an infected person can infect many people in a crowded area.
