The Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) based in Hyderabad, has asked people to wear masks and sit when they are all sitting together with their family, especially if there's a home quarantine situation in the house.
This advice has been made after a recent survey by the CCMB. In a recent advisory, the CCMB said that verbal communication should be avoided as much as possible, and that texting and emailing should be encouraged more.
It has also been said that at least a 3 feet distance should be maintained and that social distancing should be followed at all costs, especially in a closed area. The virus stays longer in the air in closed spaces, without proper ventilation, and verbal communication can increase the chances of contracting Coronavirus.
By wearing masks, the chance of contracting coronavirus is significantly reduced. The chance of virus particles from an asymptomatic person traveling to a healthy person is also greatly reduced if both parties wore masks. Hence, it has been concluded that family members should also wear masks at home when there's a home quarantining situation. This is the reason behind more texting and less talking as well.
