The COVID-19 is a highly contagious disease. No wonder it has spread across the world with such speed in a short span of time. Experts have long detailed the mode of transmission of this disease which is by droplets released in the air when a person with the infection coughs or sneezes. You get the infection if you breath in the virus particles or if you touch any contaminated surface and then touch your mouth nose and eyes with your hands. That is why there is so much stress on maintaining proper hygiene social distancing and frequent washing of hands.
