Today, a talented team of biologists from the University of the Atlantic in Florida, USA, presented the results of their rather lengthy study on how exactly the COVID-19 viral infection can spread in public toilets – it was previously thought that they could be sources of increased danger due to natural human waste, which may contain aerosol particles of the virus. And today, after analyzing a lot of statistical and scientific data, the Florida team of researchers finally confirmed this theory, providing it with more relevant statistics and medical advice.
Firstly, it is worth noting the fact that public toilets themselves can pose a danger in terms of the spread of a wide range of diseases, including viral ones – and therefore it is hardly surprising that a new study by an American team of biologists only confirmed that that the new type of coronavirus could spread even more easily in public washrooms. Scientists from Florida noted that through detailed research, they actually discovered the fact that aerosol particles of the COVID-19 virus can be contained in feces and urine, which, when flushed down the toilet, can often carry these aerosol particles through space.
That is why the research team pointed to an extremely high level of priority to ensure adequate safety conditions in public toilets, which, first of all, is reflected in the need to install and use toilet lids and less contact methods of flushing toilets in general.
One way or another, at the moment, a team of researchers from the University of the Atlantic in Florida is busy investigating some additional scenarios and configurations, within which it may discover some new opportunities for the spread of a new type of coronavirus – this is primarily necessary in order to properly secure as many users as possible from this virus threat, which continues to affect the world and its inhabitants.
