Is there possibility of COVID-19 to spread through the air?

When a person does not develop any symptom for COVID-19, will he still be able to spread the disease to other people?

Mainly, COVID-19 spreads through respiratory droplets. This transmits through coughing or sneezing. However, the possibility of acquiring the disease from a person who has not developed any symptom is low.

On the other hand, the victims tend to develop very mild symptoms of COVID-19 during initial stages. Hence, when a person has got mild fever or cough, chances of spreading the disease still exists. At present, the World Health Organization is performing its research on the same.

What is the probability of developing COVID-19 via feces of infected person?
