How COVID-19 Spreads
Spread person to person
This virus is thought to spread primarily from person to person.
- Between people who come in close contact with each other (at a distance of about 6 feet).
- Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
These drops can land on the mouth or nose of people who are nearby or may be inhaled into the lungs.
Can someone spread the virus without pain?
- People are considered the most contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest).
- Some spread may occur before people show symptoms; there have been reports of this happening with this new coronavirus, but this is not considered to be the primary way of spreading the virus.
Spread from contact with contaminated surfaces or objects
It is possible for someone to get COVID-19 by touching a surface or an object that has a virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose or eyes, but this is not considered the main way the virus spreads.
How easily the virus spread
How easily the virus spreads from person to person can vary. Some viruses are very contagious (spread easily), such as measles, while other viruses do not spread easily. Another factor is whether the spread is continuous, spreads continuously without stopping.
Prevention & Treatment
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent disease is to avoid getting this virus. However, as a reminder, the CDC always recommends daily precautions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
- Avoid close contact with sick people.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover the cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces that are frequently touched using ordinary household cleaning spray.
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing the nose, coughing, or sneezing.
People who think that they might be exposed to COVID-19 should contact their health care provider immediately.
