Many of us have been avoiding public transport to contain the transmission risk since the past few weeks. However, a large section of the fitness freaks are still confused about visiting the gym.

Experts have marked the gyms to be amongst the risky places that you reach out regularly. The risk of spreading infection between two or more individuals seems very high due to a lack of space and equipment.

Novel Coronavirus can continue to live on humid and damp surfaces for several hours and days. Metal and plastic surfaces are particularly more habitable for the Coronavirus as compared to other surfaces.
