“COVID-19 is a new disease and we are still learning about how it spreads” according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Respiratory virus infection is rapidly spreading through direct or indirect touch, droplet spray in short-range transmission and airborne transmission. The duration of contamination depends on the temperature and the texture of the surface of the object. The CDC has recommended 2-14 days of the incubation period.
As the symptoms vary and the body reacts in different ways to the COVID-19, the vaccine is still in progress. Several steps and ongoing studies are carried on for the production of the vaccine.
