How CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) Spreads 

Person to Person Spread 

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. 

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within 4 meters of each other). 
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. 

These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. 

Can someone spread the virus without being sick? 

  • People are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest). 
  • Some spread might be possible before people show symptoms; there have been reports of this occurring with this new coronavirus, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. 

Spread from contact with contaminated surfaces or objects 

It may be possible that a person can get Coronavirus by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. 

How easily the virus spreads 

How easily a virus spreads from person-to-person can vary. Some viruses are highly contagious (spread easily), like measles, while other viruses do not spread as easily. Another factor is whether the spread is sustained, spreading continually without stopping. 

The virus that causes Coronavirus seems to be spreading easily and sustainably in the community (“community spread”) in some affected areas. 

Community spread means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including some who are not sure how or where they became infected. 

 

We would like to thank you all for your cooperation and support during these challenging times. 

 

Πώς εξαπλώνεται ο Κορωνοϊός (COVID-19)

Από άτομο σε άτομο

Ο ιός πιστεύεται ότι εξαπλώνεται κυρίως από άτομο σε άτομο.

  • Μεταξύ ανθρώπων που βρίσκονται σε στενή επαφή μεταξύ τους (σε απόσταση 4 μέτρων το ένα από το άλλο).
  • Μέσω σταγονιδίων αναπνευστικών οδών που παράγονται όταν ένα μολυσμένο άτομο βήχει ή φτερνίζετε.

Αυτά τα σταγονίδια μπορούν να προσγειωθούν στα στόματα ή τις μύτες των ανθρώπων που βρίσκονται κοντά ή ενδέχεται να εισέλθουν στους πνεύμονες από την εισπνοή.

Μπορεί κάποιος να μεταδώσει τον ιό χωρίς να είναι άρρωστος;

  • Οι άνθρωποι πιστεύεται ότι είναι πιο μεταδοτικοί όταν είναι πιο συμπτωματικοί (οι ασθενέστεροι).
  • Κάποια εξάπλωση μπορεί να είναι δυνατή πριν οι άνθρωποι παρουσιάσουν συμπτώματα. Υπήρξαν αναφορές που συνέβησαν με αυτό το τρόπο με αυτό το νέο κορωνοϊό, αλλά αυτός δεν θεωρείται ο κύριος τρόπος διάδοσης του ιού.

Διάδωση από την επαφή με μολυσμένες επιφάνειες ή αντικείμενα
Μπορεί να είναι πιθανό ότι ένα άτομο μπορεί να κολλήσει το Κορωνοϊό αγγίζοντας μια επιφάνεια ή ένα αντικείμενο που έχει τον ιό πάνω του και έπειτα αγγίζοντας το δικό του στόμα, τη μύτη ή πιθανώς τα μάτια τους, αλλά αυτό δεν θεωρείται ο κύριος τρόπος εξάπλωσης του ιού.

Πόσο εύκολα μεταδίδεται ο ιός

Πόσο εύκολα μπορεί να μεταδίδεται ένας ιός από άτομο σε άτομο μπορεί να ποικίλει. Ορισμένοι ιοί είναι εξαιρετικά μεταδοτικοί (εξαπλωμένοι εύκολα), όπως ιλαρά, ενώ άλλοι ιοί δεν εξαπλώνονται τόσο εύκολα. Ένας άλλος παράγοντας είναι εάν η εξάπλωση διατηρείται, εξαπλώνεται συνεχώς χωρίς να σταματήσει.

Ο ιός που προκαλεί το Κορωνοϊό φαίνεται να εξαπλώνεται εύκολα και βιώσιμα στην κοινότητα (“Κοινωνική εξάπλωση”) σε ορισμένες πληγείσες περιοχές.

Κοινωνική εξάπλωση σημαίνει ότι οι άνθρωποι έχουν μολυνθεί από τον ιό σε μια περιοχή, συμπεριλαμβανομένων και εκείνων που δεν είναι σίγουροι για το πώς ή πού έχουν μολυνθεί.

Θα θέλαμε να σας ευχαριστήσουμε όλους για τη συνεργασία και την υποστήριξή σας σε αυτές τις δύσκολες στιγμές.
