It spreads through sneezing, coughing, kissing, using towels or other things of a patient. If a patient stands in a crowd and sneezes, all other people who come in contact with the sneeze droplets and then they touch their mouth, face or nose may get contaminated by the virus.

Any type of physical or external contact with the infected is the major cause of spreading the virus.
