It can be transferred from one person to another via droplets from coughs or sneezes, sometimes these droplets from one’s mouth are not even visible. And that’s why we all need to be very careful and need to wash hands with soap regularly.

PM Modi also mentioned that anyone who is coughing or sneezing should practice a few healthy habits. He added,

If you are coughing or sneezing, you should make sure, you are covering your mouth with a napkin. Secondly, you should make sure, the used napkin is disposed off well and should not come in contact with anyone.

Talking about the people who are infected with this virus, PM Modi said that the virus-infected people are already quarantined and are under the strict watch of experts and doctors. He further added,

Those who are suspected to have the infection should not be scared. Contact the doctor immediately and heed the advice of experts. The infection can spread to family members very easily, therefore it’s better to maintain personal hygiene.
