How does someone get infected with the virus?
There is an assumption by the medical community that this strain of Coronavirus is transmitted similarly to alternate strains which includes: 
  • Direct transmission through droplets expelled during coughs and sneezes.
  • Indirect transmission through touching surfaces and devices contaminated with the virus, and then touching the mouth, nose or eyes.
  • Direct contact with patients or infected animals or animal products.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) is working closely with a number of international organizations, including the World Health Organization (WHO), to determine how the virus is spread, in humans and animals.
