How does COVID-19 spread?

The virus can spread from the mouth or nose of an infected person, in tiny droplets when they cough, sneeze, talk, sing, or breathe. The size of these respiratory droplets range from large to small, and an infected person can be a spreader of the infection, whether or not they have symptoms.

A person may become infected by touching the mouth, nose, or eyes after touching surfaces contaminated with the virus.

Are COVID-19 vaccines safe?

Yes, and while COVID-19 vaccines are being developed at full speed, they must necessarily undergo rigorous testing in clinical trials to prove that they meet internationally agreed standards for safety and efficacy. A vaccine cannot be approved by the World Health Organization and national regulatory agencies unless it meets these criteria.
