  A novel corona virus (COVID-19) was detected in patients with pneumonia connected to the cluster of acute respiratory illness, several countries were experiencing sustained local transmission, including in India. Most previous studies of transmission pathways in environments have addressed contamina¬tion with bacteria or fungi. Reports on the presence of viral transmission in community are scarce, however, despite the fact that viruses are probably the most common cause of infection.
