Some facts

  • Transmission of the Corona virus happens when the air — along with saliva and mucus — is forced out of your mouth and nose, when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
  • This air with saliva and mucus cannot transport itself for more than a meter. That is why we have to maintain our distance from others.
  • As long as a person does not have the CORONAVIRUS symptoms he or she is not contagious and does not need to be tested. Because: 1) Without sufficient virus in the body someone does not cough nor sneeze. 2) And without the cough or sneeze someone cannot spread the virus.
  • This is the criteria of WHO and CDC and the Aruba Department of Public Health will adhere.q
