An expert from the University of Oxford has been saying that people going out jogging or running should wear masks to help protect themselves and others, especially if running past groups of people.

Trish Greenhalgh, professor in primary care health sciences at the University of Oxford, told Good Morning Britain: “There is no doubt the virus is in the air, there is no doubt that you can catch it if you inhale, and that someone else has exhaled.

“The exercising jogger, the puffing and panting jogger, you can feel their breath come and you can sometimes actually feel yourself inhale it, so there’s no doubt that there is a danger there.

“40% of COVID cases happen by catching it from people who have no symptoms – so you’re jogging along you think you’re fine, and then the next day you develop symptoms of COVID, but you’ve actually breathed that COVID onto someone perhaps you know, an old lady walking a dog or something like that.”
