Common use items that increase the risk of spreading the corona virus

Posted on Mar 5, 2020

Governments around the world are trying to prevent the spread of the new Novel Coronavirus and several steps are being taken, but the question is how is it spreading?

According to the World Health Organization, the virus is transmitted from small particles to the mouth by coughing or sneezing at an infected person.

These particles can transmit the virus directly to the body by touching the mouth, nose and eyes after touching the surface of the air or hands or objects.

Now the World Health Organization has warned that currency notes could also potentially spread the Coronavirus.

A spokeswoman for the World Bank told the British Daily Telegraph: "We know that currency note files go from one hand to another and accumulate a variety of bacteria and viruses, we will advise people to use currency notes. Wash hands after use and in the meantime avoid touching the face. '

The spokesperson also advised selecting cashless payment options as much as possible.

The virus can live on the surface of lifeless objects for a long time, but its duration is not yet determined, but it depends on the level and condition of the virus, the lower the temperature, the longer the virus can survive. Yes, if the temperature is too high, then the time for the virus to be reduced will also decrease.

Virus production decreases over time and the risk of transmission among people is reduced, in fact, the possibility of transmitting coronavirus to lifeless commodities is very low.

Although the risk is low, it is best to take precautionary measures and wash your hands frequently, cover your face with coughing or sneezing, or use a tissue and destroy immediately.

The British daily The Guardian has compiled a list of items that may increase the risk of transmission of the Coronavirus.

Currency note

Currency notes can be infected with the Coronavirus, but do not need to worry because the risk is not too high, except if someone sneezes on the notes. As far as coins are concerned, it is unlikely that the viruses will survive.

Door handles

Avoiding touching the door handle or knob is often not possible and many people can, so after touching the handle it is best to wash hands so that the risk of the virus is not left.

Office kitchens

Many people use coffee machines or tea makers in office kitchens, so it is a good idea to wash your hands thoroughly after making their own tea.

ATM machine

If you are withdrawing money from a machine, then hundreds of people will have done it before, ie it has been touched by several people.

Stair railing

Xenia railing touches thousands of people throughout the day in dynamic zeniths, accelerators, railway stations or airport zines and other buildings; if you use public transport, it has a bit of a handle on the door for climbing. When touching, it is best to wash hands thoroughly wherever you use such a railing or handle.

Shared bathroom

Washing well after going to the toilet in public or offices can prevent not only coronavirus but also many other diseases such as seasonal influenza, cholera or other.

Hospital level

Shaking hands in hospitals often lead to various diseases, which is why medical staff are often thought to wash their hands well if you are visiting a hospital or receiving treatment. When going to get it done, wash your hands thoroughly before and after.


By the way, this is not the case with smartphones in the past, but if you share an office phone, then it is a good idea to wash your hands after that.

Aircraft Seats

International travel is considered to be a factor in transmitting the virus, so sit well cleaned before takeoff of the aircraft.
