VIRUS SPREAD THROUGH THE EYES

NBC News medical contributor Dr. Joseph Fair joins TODAY’s Al Roker by video chat from his hospital bed to discuss his experience battling the coronavirus. He was tested four times before his diagnosis and says he believes he got the virus through his eyes.




Together, these results indicate that ocular surface cells including conjunctiva are susceptible to infection by SARS-CoV-2, and could therefore serve as a portal of entry as well as a reservoir for person-to-person transmission of this virus. This highlights the importance of safety practices including face masks and ocular contact precautions in preventing the spread of COVID-19 disease.




Conjunctival signs and symptoms are observed in a subset of patients with COVID-19, and SARS-CoV-2 has been detected in tears, raising concerns regarding the eye both as a portal of entry and carrier of the virus. The purpose of this study was to determine whether ocular surface cells possess the key factors required for cellular susceptibility to SARS-CoV-2 entry/infection.
