I heard that the COVID virus may possibly attach its self to the African dust particles as the dust moves through the regions.....if so, couldn't this drastically slow down or stop the spread of illness?

Take a deep breath. The anxiety is real. If you have breathing issues already don’t go out today. It’s not sticking around too long, so if you’re feeling icky today but not tomorrow it was probably the dust. If you end up with symptoms afterwards talk to your doctor to make sure it’s not just asthma. If you start having the other symptoms then worry. Don’t become a conspiracy theorist thinking that the virus is traveling the earth slowly getting to all of us.

I highly doubt it. The virus can't live very long outside of a host in the air to begin with. The only time you really need to be worried about it is if you're around alot of people in an enclosed area, especially if they're not wearing masks.
