While there are many things still unknown about COVID-19, there are some aspects of the deadly virus that appear to be well understood. It’s accepted that COVID-19 is spread mostly through person-to-person contact through respiratory droplets that are usually created when a person sneezes or coughs. When these droplets land in a person’s nose or mouth, it may subsequently be inhaled and then deposited into the lungs. While transmission can occur anywhere, people are most invulnerable when they’re indoors and within 6 feet of other people. The ease with which COVID-19 can spread among a community is a primary reason this virus is so hard to get under control.
