In the wake of Covid 19 how people go about business everyday life has drastically changed.
The fear of contracting the virus is so real and similar to fighting an invisible enemy.
There are two types of transmission: Direct and Indirect transmission.
Direct transmission refers to spread from one person to another via respiratory droplets.
Indirect transmission popularly known as fomite refers to the spread of the virus from surfaces/objects to persons. Such as doorknobs, countertops, keyboards, printer buttons, documents, pens, tables etc.
Fomite transmission of coronavirus occurs much more commonly through objects and surfaces, like doorknobs, countertops, keyboards, toys, tables, etc. Current evidence suggests that Covid 19 may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials. As stated earlier according to CDC indirect contact from a contaminated surface remains a potential risk for catching and transmitting Covid 19.
Based on Data from Lab Studies on Covid 19 and what we know about similar respiratory diseases it may be possible that a person can contract Covid 19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their mouth, nose or eyes. So does this mean one can contract Covid 19 by touching a doorknob? The answer is Yes. Past studies of flu, rhinovirus, coronavirus, and other microbes have shown that respiratory illnesses, including the new coronavirus, can spread by touching contaminated surfaces, particularly in places like daycare centers, offices, banking halls, ATM booths, eateries, restaurants, public transport, hospitals, etc.
When an infected person coughs or sneezes on their hands. Some of the droplets may splash onto a nearby surface, or the person spreads the germs by touching a faucet or countertop before washing his hands. Remember as stated earlier studies show that coronavirus can last up to three days on plastic and steel. Next, you have to come along and touch the contaminated surface, pick up enough viable viruses on your hands, and then touch your eyes, nose, and mouth. If all goes well for the virus, you will get sick.
Cleaning refers to the removal of germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces. It does not kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.
Disinfecting refers to using chemicals such as approved disinfectants, to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.
