Spray From Flushing Toilet Can Spread Coronavirus, Put The Seat Down!

Hanima Anand |Jun 17, 2020

Researchers have just announced their computer modeling study results that toilet flush can spread coronavirus and advised people to flush carefully.

Explaining why spray from toilet can spread Covid-19, scientists state that toilet flush can send countless little particles of fecal matter into the air which are totally invisible to human eyes. These particles can contain coronavirus.

Accordingly, the virus are spread to nearby items, then people surrounding or whoever touches these things.

Toilet Flush Spread Coronavirus 1
Spray from toilet flush may reach up to 3 feet and spread coronavirus via little particles.

Doctors also affirm that coronavirus can live and replicate in the human digestive system. Covid-19 has been found in human waste, so the fact that toilet flush can spread coronavirus is reasonable.

The study is conducted by a team of scientists in Yangzhou University in China who used computer modeling to illustrate the spray of toilet which could reach up to 3 feet.

Their research result may not be a shocking revelation on the spreading ability of coronavirus, but it raises alarming fact over the risks that public toilets can turn into ideal hubs for coronavirus to spread to hundreds of people. More seriously, this will pose challenge for the authority to trace back the first patient who spreads coronavirus to others.

Toilet Flush Spread Coronavirus 2
Public toilets may lead to countless coronavirus cases with unknown zero patients.

Not just coronavirus, many other virus types, such as norvirus that cause diarrhea and vomiting can also be spread in flushing toilets.

Based on the research result, scientists advise people to keep the toilet seat down when flushing to reduce the risk of coronavirus spread. Also, always keep your toilet clean, especially areas which you may get contact with.

Washing hands regularly, particularly after using the toilet, is also a must to protect you and surrounding people from Covid-19.

Wearing mask and washing hands are still the most effective but simple methods to avoid Covid-19.

Share this to others so the community can get through this pandemic together.
