Covid-19 can be contracted by touching objects


The Department of Disease Control has warned of the risk of Covid-19 being transmitted through the use of bags.

Dr Sophon Iamsirithaworn, director of the Department of General Communicable Disease, was reacting to a news report about a woman who got infected by touching bags despite being in self-quarantine in her house for three weeks.
“Therefore, we recommend that all citizens wash their hands regularly after handling items,” he said. “Most importantly, make it a habit all the time.”
He added that doctors will provide treatment for Covid-19 patients who have recovered and have negative results for another 14 days to make sure that they will not spread the virus after returning home.
"Also, they must wear a face mask for one month to gain confidence among people,” he added.
