Dr. Ahmed Al-Mandhari, WHO Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean, said that the organization still recognizes that Corona infection occurs directly by exposure to air droplets coming out of the infected person during sneezing and coughing or exposure to surfaces contaminated with droplets of an infected person, so the organization recommends adhering to preventive measures when Sneezing and coughing while wearing masks.
This came in his speech at the videoconference held by the Regional Office for Global Health regarding the latest developments in the emerging corona virus disease, today, Wednesday.
He added that the Corona virus can spread in the air in crowded places that do not have good ventilation; Therefore, masks must be worn in crowded places.
Al-Manzari pointed out that the second case of the spread of the virus in the air is hospitals, especially in rooms where an air breathing tube is installed, and other procedures in which respiratory droplets are spread, and some medical procedures that result in aerosols and small droplets that are easy to travel for short distances are performed.
