Viral infection spreads quickly
It’s alarming how quickly a viral infection can spread through buildings. Did you know that you can spread viruses just from touching a single door knob? Think about how many doors you open and close in just one day then multiply that by the hundreds of other people who have went through the exact same door.
Research presented at the 54th Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy showed that viruses can spread throughout healthcare facilities, office buildings and hotels from just one contaminated doorknob.
Researchers contaminated doorknobs at various facilities with traceable viruses at the start of the day and then took samples from various other objects such as taps, coffee pots and bed rails.
After two to four hours viruses were detected on 40% to 60% on other commonly touched objects. Yes, that’s right viruses can spread throughout your facility in just two hours. The results of the research show that viruses can spread quickly so it’s important to take precautions especially if there’s been an outbreak of influenza or any other virus.
You might not think much about viruses when you’re tapping away at your keyboard in the office because they’re not visible to the eye but that doesn’t mean that there’s none there. Why don’t you take the Sanondaf challenge and we’ll come out and take a swab from your keyboard and test it for bacteria and viruses? You’ll probably be surprised by the results.
