    Droplets of bodily fluids – such as saliva or mucus – from an infected person are dispersed in the air or on surfaces by coughing or sneezing.

    These droplets can come into direct contact with other people or can infect those who pick them up by touching infected surfaces and then their face.According to scientists, coughs and sneezes can travel several feet and stay suspended in the air for up to 10 minutes.
