Scientists are still learning a great deal about COVID-19 and how it spreads, but they have learned it can be transmitted via “aerosolized feces,” according to a new study.

The research, published by Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, notes it can be transmitted via a phenomenon known as “toilet plume,” placing greater importance that people close the toilet lid when flushing.

The article goes on to state the following:

In an interview with Forbes, Purdue University professor of mechanical engineering Qingyan said there is a “very easy way to help prevent the spread of coronavirus: ‘Close the lid and then flush.’”

The report cites four methods of COVID-19 transmission:
