Official representative of the Center of monitoring of the situation with coronavirus, the doctor Alexander Myasnikov to the TV channel “Russia 24” has answered the question of whether the coronavirus passed through the dust?

“No,” replied the doctor. He explained that the virus remains viable only in the body and is transmitted from person to person by airborne droplets and by contact.

“Outside the body, in the environment of the virus rapidly loses its infectivity and destroyed,” — said Alexander Myasnikov.

He also added that this is facilitated by high temperature and ultraviolet radiation.

According to the latest data, the daily increase in the number of new cases COVID-19 in Russia remains at the same level for the third day in a row.

Experts believe that the rate of growth (which on may 22 was +2.8%) shows a steady downward trend in the incidence.
