Coronavirus spreading through the air ? Big claim from 239 scientists, letter sent to WHO

If you are walking away from the crowd without wearing a mask or have not come in contact with any other person, do not think that you are not in danger of coronavirus, be careful, research done by many scientists around the world claims that COVID-19 is now spreading through the air.
Research by 239 scientists from 32 countries has shown that the Coronavirus lives in tiny particles in the air and can infect people.
Earlier, the World Health Organization (WHO) had said that the coronavirus was not airborne. He said that this dangerous virus can only be spread through saliva. These tiny particles come out of the body when coughing, sneezing or speaking particles in the sputum etc.
But according to a recent report in the New York Times, the new claim by scientists now says something different. Scientists have urged the WHO to immediately correct the virus. The spread of the virus is steadily increasing worldwide.
So far, more than 11.54 million people worldwide have been infected due to coronavirus. More than 5 lakh 36 thousand people have died due to this. In India too, the number of Covid-19 infections has reached nearly 7 lakh.
So far 19, 286 people have died in India. In such a scenario, if the claim that the virus spreads through the air is true, people's anxiety will increase.
These 239 scientists from 32 countries have written a public letter to the World Health Organization. All of these scientists claim that there is ample evidence that tiny particles of the virus float in the air, which can infect people. The letter will be sent next week.
News agency Reuters had asked the WHO to respond to the new claim. But he has not yet commented on the matter. According to the New York Times, 'After sneezing, large particles of saliva came out of the mouth or many fine particles entered the room.
However, according to a report in the newspaper, the health agency said there was evidence that the virus could survive in the air, but could not conclude that it was a virus that spreads from the air.
The New York Times reported that the head of the technical team at the WHO for prevention and control of infection, Dr. "We have often said that the virus could be an airborne virus,"Benedetta Allegranzi
