According to a new assessment published in the world’s most prestigious medical journal Lancet on Thursday, there is strong evidence that the SARS-CoV-2 virus that spreads covid-19 can be easily transmitted via air.
An assessment of 6 expts from the UK, USA and Canada published in The Lancet claimed that there is strong evidence that the corona virus is spread by air. Researchers have also listed 10 reasons to confirm their assessment.
6 experts from the UK, US and Canada say that this is the reason why the Public Health Department is failing to find the virus. Those who have produced this report include the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) and the University of Colorado chemist Jose-Luis Jimenez.
This report states that there has been very strong evidence of corona spreading through the air. At the same time, there is little evidence of infection due to large droplets (drops) coming out of the mouth during sneezing or speaking.
The report appealed that the WHO and other health agencies should quickly recognize that the corona spreads through the air to prevent infection with the virus quickly.
These researchers further stated that hand washing and keeping the surface clean has its own importance in preventing the spread of corona, but now the spread of corona through air must be accepted.
This report stated that in one case 53 people were infected with the same person but those 53 people had no close relationship with the infected person nor did the infection spread by touching the surface and objects.
The study also showed that the spread of Covid-19 virus is much more in closed room than in open air, but the spread of virus decreases if there is good ventilation in closed room.
Let me tell you that earlier in July last year, the New York Times had cited the research of 239 scientists from 32 countries, that the corona virus is present in small particles in the air for many hours. That is, it can also spread by air. The WHO did not accept this claim then. The WHO said at the time that the corona virus could spread not by air but by aerosols and droplets less than 5 microns.
