The deadly coronavirus bug could be spreading across the globe through farts, according to doctors.
Tests carried out earlier this year have shown that the virus was present in the feces of more than half of patients with #COVID-19.
In his findings, Dr. (Andy) Tagg cited tests carried out earlier this year which showed 55% of patients with SARS-CoV-2 had it present in their poo.
He said: “Well, SARS-CoV-2 can be detected in feces and has been detected in an asymptomatic individual up to 17 days post-exposure.”
The doctor added that previous tests have shown farts have the power to spray talcum powder long distances.
….if the infected patient was not wearing pants, and they released a large amount of gas, then someone else – if they took a close sniff at the gas – could be at risk.
Dr Tagg added: “Perhaps SARS-CoV-2 can be spread through the power of parping – we need more evidence.
“So remember to wear appropriate PPE at all times and stay safe!”
