Coronavirus symptoms: Is the virus spread through a person’s eyes? Symptoms to spot

Can the virus be spread through the eyes

The conjunctiva is a mucous membrane which covers the surface of the eye, said Specsavers.

The site continued: “If viral particles, such as the coronavirus, come into contact with it (for example, from a sneeze, cough or touching your eyes with unclean hands), this could result in an individual becoming infected.

“This is because coronavirus latches onto ACE-2 receptors on the cells of the conjunctiva, similar receptors are found in the respiratory tract and lungs.

“These cell surface receptors act as a gateway into cells themselves, leading to the virus entering the body.”
