New Delhi. As fast as new variants of Coronavirus are coming, scientists are also engaged in destroying it. In this episode, researchers from the Aerosol Research Center of the University of Bristol have found in their new research that the corona virus starts losing its effect as soon as it comes in contact with the air, after exhaling. Researchers found that the virus loses 90 percent of its infectious capacity within 20 minutes as soon as it enters the air. Most of this capacity is exhausted in the first 5 minutes. This study shows how the virus behaves in the air.
Social distancing and masks are very important
Although this study has not been reviewed yet, but it definitely confirms that the virus spreads only over short distances. This study once again gives importance to the fact that social distancing and masks are very important for the prevention of corona. This is how it can be stopped.
UK investigators have focused only on the first three variants of Corona for this. Omicron is not yet involved in this investigation. However, he believes that other variants behave differently from this. Experts believe that as people move away the aerosol gets diluted or diluted. Due to which he loses his infectiousness.
Virus loses its infectious ability in just 5 seconds
The results of the study show that as soon as the virus particles leave the carbon dioxide-rich and moist space of the lungs, they start drying up rapidly. Due to which he starts failing to infect other people. The humidity in the air determines how fast the symptoms of the virus are inactivated.
Humidity or humidity levels below 50 percent, which are typically found in dry office environments. The virus loses its infectious ability in just 5 seconds. At the same time, the study also suggests that air temperature does not affect the infectiousness of the virus.
