Spread from person to person
The virus is believed to spread mainly from person to person.
- Between people who are in close contact with each other (within about 6 feet).
- Breath droplets that occur when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
These droplets can end up in the mouth or nose of people nearby or who may be inhaled into the lungs.
Can someone spread the virus without being sick?
- Spread is possible before people show symptoms. People who show no symptoms can continue to carry the virus and pass it on to others.
Spread through contact with contaminated surfaces or objects
It is possible for a person to get COVID-19 by touching a surface or an object on which the virus is located and then touching their own mouth, nose or possibly their eyes. However, it is not believed that this is the main route of the virus spreads.
How easily the virus spreads
How easily a virus spreads from person to person can vary. Some viruses are very contagious (spread easily) like measles, while other viruses are not spread so easily. Another factor is whether the spread is maintained and continues to spread without stopping.
There is currently no 2019 Coronavirus disease vaccine (COVID-19). The best way to prevent disease is not to be exposed to this virus. As a reminder, however, CDC always recommends everyday preventive measures to prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
- Avoid close contact with sick people.
- Do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces with a normal household cleaning spray or cloth.
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the toilet. before the meal; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
