Currently, the world is gripped by the spread of COVID-19, better known as Coronavirus, a potentially fatal illness that can affect your lungs and airways.
With every passing day, it feels like the global pandemic hits new heights. As the number of cases (and fatalities) continues to rapidly rise — now surpassing 345,000 confirmed cases and 14,000 deaths worldwide — we’re witnessing several countries enter full lockdown mode, entire populations being urged to quarantine/self-isolate and socially distance themselves, schools and businesses being forced to temporarily close down, major sporting events being postponed and supermarket shelves being depleted.
In the UK, there have been over 8,000 confirmed Coronavirus cases and more than 400 deaths, according to the latest reports. While these figures are less than those in countries like Italy, China and the United States, the Government has been forced to implement strict social distancing measures in an attempt to “flatten the curve.” With the highest number of cases of any region in the UK, London is a particular cause of concern.
How can you prevent the spread of Coronavirus?
There are preventative measures you can take, as an individual, to help combat the spread of Coronavirus and keep yourself safe. The World Health Organisation (WHO) advises you to wash your hands thoroughly and frequently; cover your mouth when you cough and sneeze; and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
While this is excellent advice for when you’re out and about, it’s also important to keep your home or office safe from the spread of Coronavirus. Just think how easy it is to carry germs inside without realising it, especially if you live in a busy city like London. So, how can you help to safeguard your home or place of work from Coronavirus? Through cleaning.
According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “current evidence suggests that novel coronavirus may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials.” Therefore, “cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is a best practice measure for prevention of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in households and community settings.”
