China News Service, May 10, according to Singapore’s Lianhe Zaobao, recently, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its public guidance on the spread of the new coronavirus, emphasizing that the virus can be inhaled by the human body through very fine respiratory droplets or atomized aerosols. It can also enter the mouth, nose or eyes of a person through contact with droplets or hands contaminated by the virus.
The center also stated that the previously recommended preventive measures are effective.

The report quoted US media sources as saying that the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention clearly emphasized in the updated guidelines that the virus can be spread through the air, even if people are more than 6 feet (about 1.83 meters) away from the infected person, it is still possible to inhale the virus.
The report pointed out that the language of this new guideline published by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on the Internet is significantly different from the previous guideline.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention previously stated in its guidelines that most people are infected with the new crown "through close contact rather than airborne transmission."
However, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention noted on the relevant webpage that although the understanding of the spread of the new crown virus has changed, the method of preventing infection with the virus has not changed, and all the previously recommended preventive measures are still effective.
