CDC Changes Guidelines on How Coronavirus Spreads

CDC guidelines on how coronavirus spreads

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

CDC reverses itself and says guidelines it posted on coronavirus airborne transmission were wrong. CDC removed recently added language saying it was “possible” that it spreads via airborne transmission.

The virus that causes COVID-19 is spreading very easily and sustainably between people. Information from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic suggests that this virus is spreading more efficiently than influenza, but not as efficiently as measles, which is highly contagious. In general, the more closely a person interacts with others, and the longer that interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread.

A draft version of proposed changes to these recommendations was posted in error to the agency’s official website. CDC is currently updating its recommendations regarding the airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). Once this process has been completed, the updated language will be posted.
