How Does the Coronavirus Spread?
Unlike cold and flu, which are airborne, the virus spreads only via droplets when a person coughs or sneezes. The droplets land on the surface and get picked up by the hands of another person and spread further. People catch the virus when they touch their infected hands to their mouth, nose, or eyes.
The single most important thing we can do to protect ourselves is to keep our hands clean by washing them frequently with disinfecting soaps and water or hand-sanitizers.
