It has become known that COVID-19 is transmitted human-to-human through respiratory droplets by coughing or sneezing. It can also occur through contact with surfaces in the immediate vicinity, or with objects used by a person with COVID-19. The best way to protect from the COVID-19 is to stay home to decrease the risk of transmission. Even if the exhibition no symptoms, the human may still be a carrier of the coronavirus. The CDC reported that it is unknown whether the virus can spread through vomit, urine, and breast milk.
