The coronavirus responsible for COVID-19 is transmitted by droplets, which are respiratory secretions that are released when we cough, sneeze or talk.
The virus is transported by droplets. It can reach a person who is nearby (less than a metre away) or settle on a surface contaminated by droplets, such as hands or handkerchiefs. This is why it is important to comply with barrier measures and social distancing.
