Australian Doctor says Coronavirus can be spread through farts

They say that Covid-19 is mainly transmitted between people through droplets spread from coughing and touching or shaking hands.

Well what are the chances getting infected through a fart?

A doctor in Australia now says that farting could cause coronavirus after analysing a series of tests take from coronavirus patients earlier this year.

Australian doctor Andy Tagg cited tests that revealed the virus was present in the faeces of 55 per cent of patients with Covid-19.

And medics have previously warned farts contain tiny poo particles that can spread bacteria.

Dr Tagg wrote: “Well, SARS-CoV-2 can be detected in faeces 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.

He added: “Perhaps SARS-CoV-2 can be spread through the power of parping – we need more evidence.
