The Covid-19 virus created reckless havoc worldwide, and its strains do not seem to go away. How this virus travels from one body to another is the question that led to several research and studies. Epidemiologists discovered that airborne transmission is the most understudied mechanism that contributes to spreading viruses like Covid and other pathogens that affect the respiratory system and reside in respiratory fluids.
