With the spread of the Coruna virus, and increasing cases of deaths and deaths from around the world, the majority of people live in a state of panic and obsessive about personal hygiene.
This leads most people to supply all kinds of disinfectants, by killing germs, bacteria and viruses that enter the house. But in reality, you only need one antiseptic, according to “cnn” in Arabic.
The WHO Regional Office for the Middle East has published, through its official account on Twitter, recommendations about the type of disinfectant that you will buy next time you go out to the market.
According to the World Health Organization, if the surfaces are dirty, wipe them first with regular household soap or detergent, then wash them with water. Thus, use a regular household antiseptic, such as a bleach.
Global Health clarified: “The active substance – sodium hypochlorite – eliminates bacteria, fungi and viruses in the ovaries.”
It is important to protect hands when using the bleach, for example by wearing rubber gloves. The bleach should be diluted in water as well, according to the instructions on the package.
According to one study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers say that the new Corona virus can live on plastic and stainless steel surfaces, for up to 3 days. The study says that the virus can live in the air for three hours.
What are the main points of the research?
The virus can live for 72 hours, after putting it on plastic and stainless steel.
Corona virus can remain on copper for 4 hours, and about 24 hours after it is placed on the carton.
In the air, the virus survived “for the duration of the researchers’ experiment,” or 3 hours.
Of course, a person can become infected with the Coronavirus if he touches the surface of the virus, and then he places his hand on his mouth, nose, or eyes.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention emphasizes the importance of cleaning and disinfection of surfaces that the sick person frequently touches, such as tables, door handles, and lighting switches.
