The CDC states that coronaviruses most commonly spread from an infected person to others through:.
• the air by coughing and sneezing
• close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands
• touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes before washing your hands
• rarely, fecal contamination
Currently, it’s unclear how easily or sustainably the Novel Coronavirus is spreading between people. There is much more to learn about the transmissibility, severity, and other features associated with the Novel Coronavirus and investigations are ongoing.
