WHO warns partying youngsters not to 'let down guard' on COVID-19

Coronavirus will spread in ‘one big wave’ & won’t go away as seasons change – WHO

This one is behaving differently.

After surveying 2,000 people in the United Kingdom and USA, the researchers found that the data from both countries suggests that aerosol transmission of the virus - via microdroplets which are so small that they remain suspended in the air for several hours - is very likely. "But what it particularly likes is jumping from one person to another when we come in close contact, so let's not give it that opportunity".

He added: "We and other countries are detecting young people with COVID-19, in February we never noticed them".

"One of the biggest mistakes that people make with epidemiological surveys is multiple hypothesis testing".

She said World Health Organization is monitoring coronavirus cases occurring alongside normal seasonal influenza cases amid the southern hemisphere's winter, adding that lab samples are suggesting a delayed start to flu season, per Reuters.

She went on to say "there is a huge outbreak".


"The most intense and the highest numbers are being experienced in the USA. Also, Brazil, they are an equatorial country".

"The results of this survey in terms of associations between height and diagnosis suggest downward droplet transmission is not the only transmission mechanism and aerosol transmission is possible", Evan Kontopantelis, PhD, from the University of Manchester, said in a statement. She urged vigilance in applying measures to slow transmission that is spreading via mass gatherings.

A new survey has found more evidence to suggest that people can become infected with COVID-19 through aerosol transmission, which could be prevented by wearing a mask.

A study recently in fact claimed that we might not even need vaccines if everybody took the virus seriously and follows social distancing and hand washing protocols rigorously.

Also "ensuring you stay home if you've got any symptoms at all, ensuring that if you've been in contact with somebody known to have the virus that you identify yourself and self-isolate", said Harris.
