New Delhi: The speed of the new variant of Corona, Omicron, has become uncontrollable. This variant has spread all over the world. In the last 24 hours, more than 27 lakh cases have been found worldwide. People are falling prey to it and getting admitted to the hospital. Seeing the speed of the case, the concern is that how is this variant spreading so fast? Scientists from all over the world are doing research on this. Researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder in the US have answered many questions in their new research.
How does this virus spread?
The infection is spread by a corona virus called SARS-CoV-2. According to scientists, air is fluid. Different types of particles are present in it, which spread in the atmosphere over time. Viruses are also capable of spreading with this air. If the infected person exhales and we breathe in the same air while being close to him, then the virus gets transferred in our body.
Researchers say that the particles of the corona virus are most commonly transferred when breathing deeply and exhaling or speaking loudly. In research, scientists examined every factor of infection. This included the ability of the virus to transfer, people shouting, singing, breathing and exhaling, room size, crowd or not, and wearing masks.
