The World Health Organization says it acknowledges emerging evidence of the airborne spread of COVID-19, after a group of scientists urged the WHO to update its recommendations.
Speaking at a virtual press briefing on Tuesday, a senior WHO official explained there is a possibility of airborne and aerosol transmission,.. but more evidence needs to be collected and analyzed
Until now, the WHO has insisted the virus spreads primarily through droplets expelled from the nose and mouth of an infected person that quickly sink to the ground.
