Eyes may play a role in spread of COVID-19

New research on coronavirus has revealed that COVID-19 transmits from one person to another mainly through airborne “respiratory droplets” which have produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

These droplets contact the mouths or noses of surrounding people, and possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

These droplets also can be spread to your eyes when you touch your face and then your eyes with unwashed hands.

New research suggests that medical staff treating coronavirus patients will need masks and protective clothing, as well as special glasses, say scientists researching at Johns Hopkins University. Coronavirus targets ACE-2 receptors in cells, including ACE-2 in the eyes.

On the other hand, research has revealed that in addition to fever, cough and shortness of breath, 6 new symptoms of coronavirus infection have emerged. Head and body aches and sore throat can also be possible symptoms of coronavirus.

Antibiotics help kill bacteria but are not effective against viruses, researchers are researching antiviral drugs that can damage viral proteins and prevent infections.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says coronavirus  caused headaches, sore throats, shivering from the cold, loss of smell and taste. Previously, fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

Soap is very effective in eliminating the virus and the best way to avoid coronavirus is to wash your hands with soap, do not touch your face, keep away from sick people and wash your hand frequently and World Health Organization recommend diligently washing your hands for 20 seconds or more with warm water and soap.
