Medical experts know that COVID-19 spreads through close contact with an infected person, mainly when that individual coughs or sneezes. There is also evidence that this virus can spread on surfaces, however, and that it can last for hours on many of them. This makes the use of personal protection equipment (PPE) that protects you from surface transmission especially important. You need the clean key to reduce your exposure to surfaces.
How Viruses Spread
When someone coughs or sneezes, they release large droplets that may be expressed onto the eyes, nose, or mouth of anyone within six feet of this individual. Those droplets can also be inhaled, or they can land on nearby surfaces.
According to the Harvard Medical School, a recent study found that the COVID-19 can survive for up to four hours on copper surfaces, up to 24 hours on anything made of cardboard, and could be viable up to three days on surfaces made of plastic and stainless steel. This means that anyone who touches these surfaces containing the live virus and then touches their eyes or nose has a good chance of not only contracting the coronavirus but also spreading it to others.
Importance of Using PPE
The fact that the virus may live for long periods on certain surfaces makes the use of personal protection equipment, such as gloves or a mask, more important than ever. However, even these are not foolproof.
If a person wearing both latex gloves and a mask comes to contact with the virus, it can remain viable on their gloves. If they inadvertently touch their mask with their gloves or improperly remove the gloves before removing their mask, the virus could then transfer close to the mouth, nose, or eyes. Touching or rubbing any area of their face, even after disinfecting or washing their hands, can potentially spread the virus into an orifice and cause them to become infected.
Limiting Contact with Surfaces
The best way to avoid coming into contact with COVID-19 is to make sure any surface you touch has been properly disinfected and is cleaned often. While you may be able to do this consistently and effectively at home, it may not be possible to do in public places. Although nearly all businesses are making efforts to disinfect as often as they can, there is no guarantee that every public place is disinfected after each use.
Your best protection against coming into contact with COVID-19 on surfaces such as keypads or switchplates is to use a tool that allows you to avoid contact with these surfaces. This is where the Cleanhand makes a difference.
