Florida doctor uses lab experiment to demonstrate potential for COVID-19 germ spread

(CNN)- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention believe COVID-19 is mainly contracted from person-to-person.

But as states open again, many scientists are concerned that the virus can still be spread through surfaces.

Dr. Patrick Hughes is an ER doctor who oversees the emergency medicine simulation program at Florida Atlantic University.

He invited CNN’s Randi Kaye to his lab to conduct an experiment on potential COVID-19 germ spread.
