It is believed that the virus spreads mainly from person to person.
- Between people in close contact with each other (within about 6 feet).
- Respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
These water droplets may fall into the mouth or nose of nearby people, or may be inhaled into the lungs.
Can someone spread the virus without getting sick?
- People are considered to be the most symptomatic (the sickest).
- There may be some transmission before people show symptoms; it has been reported that this new type of coronavirus will happen, but this is not the main way the virus spreads.
Spread by contact with contaminated surfaces or objects
A person may get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object with the virus on it and then touching their mouth, nose or possibly their eyes, but this is not the main way the virus spreads.
How easy it is for the virus to spread
The ease with which the virus spreads from person to person may vary. Some viruses are as highly contagious (easily spread) like measles, while others are less spread. Another factor is whether the spread continues, and the spread continues without stopping.
Prevention and treatment
There is currently no vaccine to prevent the 2019 Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). The best way to prevent disease is to avoid contact with the virus. However, as a reminder, the CDC always recommends daily preventive measures to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
- Stay at home when you are sick.
- Cover the cough or sneeze with a tissue, and then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Use regular household cleaners or wipes to clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- Wear a mask or face shield in public.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
