A rumor claims that the novel coronavirus can enter a person's body through the skin.

In fact, the novel coronavirus is unlikely to enter the human body through the skin. It is mainly spread through respiratory droplets and direct contact with a carrier.

Washing your hands properly and frequently is an effective way to avoid virus transmission, according to Zhou Qi, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
