Coronavirus is the most vital topic nowadays for its rapid out outbreak throughout the world. All are anxious over its spreading.

Recently trace of the coronavirus found in a hospital air duct, which has led scientists to believe the disease could be spread through air-conditionin, making it more contagious than initially thought. 

Swab analysis of rooms used by three coronavirus patients by experts at the National Centre for Infectious Diseases in Singapore suggest that the respiratory illness spreads easier than previously thought. 

An air duct connected to the room of one of the patients, thought to be only suffering from 'mild' symptoms', was found with traces of the virus, suggesting 'suggests small, virus-laden droplets may be displaced by airflows and deposited on equipment such as vents'.

The research, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, comes shortly after it was reported that 142 Britons were reported trapped on a Princess Cruise ship anchored for patients to undergo testing, off the coast of California recently.
