Coronavirus could spread through farts.

One medic claimed people may be passing the deadly disease on to others through omitting bodily gasses.

They say the chances of catching Covid-19 through farting is “tiny” and that Covid-19 is mainly transmitted between people through droplets spread from coughing and touching or shaking hands.

Australian doctor Andy Tagg pointed out that farting could cause coronavirus after analysing a series of tests take from coronavirus patients earlier this year.

He cited tests that revealed the virus was present in the faeces of 55 per cent of patients with Covid-19.

And medics have previously warned farts contain tiny poo particles that can spread bacteria.

Dr Tagg wrote: “Well, SARS-CoV-2 can be detected in faeces and has been detected in an asymptomatic individual up to 17 days post-exposure.”

The doctor added that previous tests have shown farts have the power to spray talcum powder long distances.

He added: “Perhaps SARS-CoV-2 can be spread through the power of parping – we need more evidence.
