The World Health Organization on Thursday has issued new guidelines for the Novel Corona Virus acknowledging some reports of airborne spread. As per the current guidelines, Covid-19 transmission may occur through close contact through an infected individual, directly or indirectly through saliva, respiratory secretion, cough, or sneeze.
