Following an appeal from nearly 250 scientists, the World Health Organization (WHO) recognized a way to spread coronavirus through the air. However, experts of the organization believe that additional research is needed.

According to RIA News, the virus can spread with the smallest particles of air in closed and poorly ventilated rooms, especially if they have a large number of people. However, according to WHO technical expert Benedetta Allegranzi, this method cannot be ruled out, but all the evidence needs to be further examined.

Ранее scientists from 32 countries contacted WHO. They believe that the virus spreads not only with drops released by a sick person during sneezing, coughing and talking. Coronavirus, they insisted, might linger in the air for a while.
