I think what is meant is that the virus can spread through physical contact with infected fluids.

If that's so, why all the masks??? If it's not airborne, the masks are useless! Think, people!!!
Washing your hands whenever possible is the best idea I've heard. Something we should be doing anyway.

AVHS Dad, when you breath you exhale tiny water droplets. Other people nearby inhale these fluids. Bacteria (germs) and viruses (which are not considered "germs") infect these fluids. The droplets are the carriers.
