Coughing in light air can increase the risk of corona virus
According to a study conducted by researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, the risk of SARS-CoV2 infection increases even in light air, the study recommended wearing a mask outside homes, especially when there is light wind.
Research published on Wednesday in the journal ‘Physics of Fluids’ revealed that when a person coughs in the open, the virus can spread rapidly over long distances due to wind blowing from that direction.
It is very important to wear a mask outside
Co-study Amit Agarwal, from IIT, Bombay, said, “This study points to a higher risk of infection from coughing in the direction of the wind. According to its findings, we recommend wearing a mask outdoors, especially in light wind conditions.
