We're not 100% sure but that seems to be what makes this one different from SARS and MERS. Those two were spread by contact. This appears to be airborne as well.Source(s): Respiratory therapist (B.S., RRT, RPFT) Working on my masters in nursing

Thought/believed to be so. There is still not enough specifics for this specific virus.

It is airborne through getting into the mouth and eyes from people with the virus coughing and sneezing. It can also be picked up via the hands from surfaces that have been coughed and sneezed on if the mouth or eyes are subsequently rubbed.
