500 new coronavirus cases in South Korea, Global death toll passes 3,000Scientists around the world have asked WHO to revise the Covid 19 recommedations as they say there is enough evidence to show that the smaller particles of Coronavirus present in the air can infect people.

According to Ney York Times, researchers and scientists from 32 countries are planning to publish a sicientific journal next week outling the evidence which shows smaller particle in air can infect people.

Scientist also told NYT that “Whether carried by large droplets that zoom through the air after a sneeze, or by much smaller exhaled droplets that may glide the length of a room, the coronavirus is borne through air and can infect people when inhaled.”

However according to NYT, Dr. Benedetta Allegranzi, the technical lead at WHO said, “”Especially in the last couple of months, we have been stating several times that we consider airborne transmission as possible but certainly not supported by solid or even clear evidence.”
