The Islamic University and Covid-19

It is known that this disease is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, Which spreads among people in many different ways. The virus can be spread by small liquid particles that an infected person secretes from their mouth or nose when they cough, sneeze, speak, sing or breathe. These range from larger respiratory droplets to smaller aerosols. Current evidence suggests that the virus is spreading mainly close contacts, Usually within one meter (short term). A person can become infected when aerosols or droplets containing the virus are inhaled or when they come into direct contact with the eyes, nose or mouth. The virus can also spread in poorly ventilated and/or crowded indoor environments, People tend to spend longer periods of time. This is because the aerosol remains suspended in the air or travels beyond one meter (long range). People may also become infected by touching surfaces that have been contaminated with the virus on contact with eyes, nose or mouth without cleaning hands. More research continues to better understand the spread of the virus and identify the most dangerous environments and why. Research is also underway to study emerging variant baskets of the virus and why some are more transmissible (link to WHO case reports)

Infected people can be contagious and can transmit the virus to other people whether or not they have symptoms. Laboratory data suggest that infected people are, Apparently, Better able to transmit the infection just before they develop symptoms (i.e. two days before onset of symptoms)

satisfied) and in the early stages of their illness. People who

Severe forms of the disease are contagious for longer. While a person who is not showing any symptoms at all can transmit the virus to other people, The frequency of occurrence is not yet known, More research is needed in this area.
