Coronavirus eyes: Can you get coronavirus through your eyes? 1

To avoid contracting an infection in this way, people may don a face mask, however, they are not entirely effective as COVID-19 can also enter through the eyes.

Much like the mouth and nose, the eye contains a mucous membrane, via which the virus has a passage to the rest of the body.

The virus is most likely to enter in through these membranes after people touch an infected surface before touching their face.

To avoid increasing infections, health agencies such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the US warn people against regularly touching their faces.
