The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention CDC acknowledges that the virus that causes Coronavirus, which is SARS-Cov-2, can be transmitted through respiratory fluids.

CDC says that during exhalation, people release respiratory fluids. These fluids(droplets) carry the virus and transmit the infection. They also say that within seconds to minutes, these large droplets settle out of air. But the small droplets dry rapidly and remain in the air for minutes and hours, making the virus airborne.

This acknowledgment came of CDC when scientist from all over the world are claiming that SARS-Cov-2 is airborne.

Recently, a Lancet study, justifying the clamour, said that there is consistent and strong evidence. That the SARS-CoV-2 virus is predominantly transmitted through the air.

“The evidence supporting airborne transmission is overwhelming, and evidence supporting large droplet transmission is almost non-existent,” Jimenez said. “It is urgent that the World Health Organization and other public health agencies adapt their description of transmission to the scientific evidence so that the focus of mitigation is put on reducing airborne transmission,” the study noted.
