SteraMist™ The Technology that Kills Virus, Bacteria and Mold.
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) due to SARS-CoV-2 has been spreading globally, and the World Health Organization declared a pandemic on 11th March 2020.
Like many respiratory viruses, including the flu, Covid-19 can be spread in tiny droplets released from the nose and mouth of an infected person as they cough. A single cough can produce up to 3,000 droplets. These particles can land on other people, clothing, and surfaces around them; but some of the smaller particles can remain in the air. There is also some evidence that the virus is also shed for longer in fecal matter, so anyone not washing their hands thoroughly after visiting the bathroom could contaminate anything they touch.
It is worth noting that, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, touching a surface or object with the virus and then touching one’s own face “is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads”. Even so, the CDC, the World Health Organization and others health authorities, have emphasised that both washing one’s hands and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces daily are key in preventing Covid-19’s spread. Although we still don’t know exactly how many cases are being caused directly by contaminated surfaces, experts advise exercising caution. Studies suggest the virus might last a long time on door handles, plastic-coated or laminated worktops, and other hard surfaces.
