COVID-19 is an enveloped virus that belongs to the coronavirus' group.

Aerosols which may remain airborne are invisible to the eye. Some droplets will settle quite quickly depending on size whilst the smaller remains in suspension with viral content being spread over longer distances. A WHO review by Professor Lidia Moranska and Junji CAO has initiated research to ensure that health bodies include airborne transmission or the Novel Coronavirus.
