It is stated that under certain conditions, people with Covid-19 infected others who were more than 6 feet away (6 feet – 1.8 meter). It took place in closed spaces with insufficient ventilation. Sometimes, an infected person was breathing hard, for example, during singing or physical exercises.

“CDC continues to believe, based on current science, that people are more likely to become infected the longer and closer they are to a person with COVID-19.  Today’s update acknowledges the existence of some published reports showing limited, uncommon circumstances where people with COVID-19 infected others who were more than 6 feet away or shortly after the COVID-19-positive person left an area,” the message said.

According to the experts, people might protect themselves by observing the distance of at least six feet from others, covering mouth and nose by mask, washing hands and avoiding overcrowded spaces; in case of the disease, by staying at home.

As we reported, The EU Advisory Mission Ukraine (EUAM) hosted a webinar with a Finnish expert on how to train sniffer dogs to detect people infected with Covid-19. This innovative approach to combating the pandemic was launched in Finland last month. EUAM is now supporting Ukrainian law enforcement agencies with best practices and lessons learned from this Finnish pilot project.
