CDC: “Coronavirus does not spread easily”

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued updated coronavirus guidelines that now downplay the chances of contracting the virus from surfaces, potentially offering relief to millions of Americans who have been concerned they might catch the disease from purchased groceries or delivered packages. 

On its website, the CDC says that Coronavirus is “thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.” Yet “the virus does not spread easily in other ways.

It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes,” the CDC also states on its site. “This is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads, but we are still learning more about this virus.

The new guidelines come after several months of concerns that the virus was spreading quickly and easily through items such as grocery store packaging and delivered packages.
