Maybe we should have seen this one coming. From Daily Star comes an article about spreading COVID-19 through farting.

British TV Dr. Xander Van Tulleken believes it’s possible. He’s citing the work of Dr. Andy Tagg. Earlier this year, Dr. Tagg was researching another virus and found 55% of his test subjects showed traces of it in their poop for as long as two and a half weeks after they were exposed.

The...bottom that docs like Dr. Tulleken are leaning towards the theory that it could be possible to spread COVID-19 through your farts.

So what do you do if you're gaseous and worried? Just continue to self-isolate and wear pants. Dr. Tagg's research also showed that wearing pants stops anything that was released through a fart from spreading through the room. Except the smell.
