According to the review, the international team led by McMaster University and St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton found that physical distancing of 2 meters, or 6.5 feet is required to stop the coronavirus from spreading. On top of that, people must also be wearing a face mask of some kind to add a layer of protection to the area they are breathing in.

Eye protection is the third form of prevention that the review found, and according to Holger Schunemann, the co-director of the World Health Organization (WHO) "Although the direct evidence is limited, the use of masks in the community provides protection, and possibly N95 or similar respirators worn by health-care workers suggest greater protection than other face masks. Availability and feasibility and other contextual factors will probably influence recommendations that organizations develop about their use. Eye protection may provide additional benefits."

This review on coronavirus evidence was conducted by a large international group of researchers, epidemiologists, patients, public and health policy experts, front-line and specialist clinicians and has been published in The Lancet.
