Coronavirus may spread via air: top US scientist

Apr 04, 2020 12:57 IST

The new coronavirus might spread through the air via normal breathing and speaking, a top US scientist said on Friday. Anthony Fauci, head of infectious diseases at the National Institutes of Health, told Fox News the guidelines on masks would be changed "because of some recent information that the virus can actually be spread even when people just speak, as opposed to coughing and sneezing." Right now masks are advised to only sick people and those attending to them. Now the US is advising masks to all.
