Can you catch coronavirus by smoking after somebody?

The COVID-19 virus is spread person to person, among people who are in close contact with one another through respiratory droplets. If these droplets enter someone else’s mouth and are inhaled into the lungs, then that person may become ill. It is important to remember that COVID-19 may be spread by people who do not show symptoms.
