WHO May Need To Revise Rules -Coronavirus Is Airborne, Say Scientists

Coronavirus disease spreads primarily from person to person through small droplets from nose or mouth, which are expelled when a person with COVID-19 coughs, sneezes or speaks: WHO


In an open letter to the agency, which the researchers plan to publish in a scientific journal next week, 239 scientists in 32 countries outlined the evidence showing smaller particles can infect people, the NYT said.


However, the health agency said the evidence for the virus being airborne was not convincing, according to the NYT.

"Especially in the last couple of months, we have been stating several times that we consider airborne transmission as possible but certainly not supported by solid or even clear evidence," Dr. Benedetta Allegranzi, the WHO's technical lead of infection prevention and control, was quoted as saying by the NYT.
