Several international reports raised questions over the spread of coronavirus through central air conditioning. Reports said that if there is an infected person in a centrally airconditioned area like shopping malls or airports, the low temperature can pose a risk, in case the person sneezes. COVID-19 is not yet proved to be air-borne. The virus gets transmitted through droplets via surfaces. The virus is believed to be more stable at low temperature and low humidity environments.
