How does the corona virus spread?

As of now, researchers know that the new corona virus is spread through droplets released into the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

A study shows that SARS-CoV-2 can last for several hours on various types of surfaces:

What is community spread?

Follow the Steps:

Social distancing or physical distancing, keeping space between yourself and other people when you have to go out. Quarantine, keeping someone home and separated from other people if they might have been exposed to the virus. Isolation, keeping sick people away from healthy people, including using a separate "sick" bedroom and bathroom when possible
