Corona Virus Might Be Airborne

A new discovery has been made concerning the corona virus. The Director General of the Nigeria Center for Disease Control, Chikwe Ihekweazu has stated the possibility for the corona virus being airborne.

Although, the spread of the virus was primarily based on droplets which made wearing of face masks and social distancing a preventive measure, now that it’s possible that the virus is transmittable through air, what would be a better preventive measure for this?

What has been the NCDC’s approach in finding a cure for the virus? Or are they waiting for other developed countries to come up with a cure?
