Siouxsie Wiles: What are fomites, and how much do they transmit Covid-19?

Microbiologist Dr Siouxsie Wiles explains how transmission of Covid-19 from infected surfaces might not be as common as scientists initially thought, and how it’s far more likely for the virus to be spread via airborne droplets – which is why we should be using masks as part of our Covid toolkit.

Featuring illustrations from Toby Morris.
