    Under what circumstances can the Coronavirus spread?

    Dear Ilse and Jaap
    SARS Coronavirus 2 can spread via :
    – Direct person to person contact (touching),
    – Through indirect contact with inanimate surfaces that have virus on them (fomite transmission),
    – By inhaling respiratory droplets that form when someone talks, sneezes, coughs, etc.
    – By inhaling smaller virus-containing particles (aerosols), although we don’t know if this happens very often in every day life.
    – Perhaps though other bodily secretions, such as faeces. But this is problably not a major route.

    We think most infections occur between people who are in close range contact (<2m) for at least 15 minutes.

    Does this answer your question?
