Noninvasive mechanical ventilation is a known procedure to generate aerosols and thus may increase the risk to trasmit COVID-19. At the same time, it was studied in MERS and found not to be an effective intervention to ventilate those patients as 92.4% ended up with intubation and invasive ventilation. Therefore, we discourage the use of NIV as much as possible in COVID-19.
