To avoid contracting an infection in this way, people may don a face mask, however, they are not entirely effective as COVID-19 can also enter through the eyes.

Much like the mouth and nose, the eye contains a mucous membrane, via which the virus has a passage to the rest of the body.

The virus is most likely to enter in through these membranes after people touch an infected surface before touching their face.
