Reports by WHO and CDC say that the coronavirus could spread between people who are in close contact with one another.Reports of How COVID-19 spreads by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that coronavirus can be spread through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, the droplets land on objects and surfaces around the person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth and between people who are in close contact with one another.
