Let’s get started by briefly touching the basics:

What is a Virus & How Can it Harm Us?

A Virus: is a microscopic parasite that invades specific healthy cells in your body and hijacks them to make more copies of themselves and causes harm to your body.

The Coronavirus family: are specialized viruses that attack your lungs. Under an electron microscope, these viruses look like they have spikes shaped like crowns (corona in Latin). SARS (in 2002), MERS (in 2012), and the current Covid-19.

The Covid-19: is a new, highly contagious virus that attacks the human lungs, causing fever-like symptoms. 80% of people who are infected recover without any hospital treatment. However, patients who develop difficulties in breathing will need to be hospitalized. Death can occur in cases with complications.

How the Covid-19 Directly Spreads: The first infection was from an animal to a human (which animal is still in speculation), and at this pandemic point, the virus primarily spreads directly from an infected human to another human through coughs, sneezes, or breath that eventually end up in the lungs of a new victim.

How the Covid-19 Indirectly Spreads: Even with no one around, the Covid-19 that travels through an infected person’s cough could float around in the air and land on surfaces like doorknobs and tabletops. If an unsuspecting victim breathes the contaminated air or touches the infected surface and at some point of the day uses their hands to touch their mouth or rub their eyes, the virus will eventually find its way to the new victim’s lungs.

How Long Can the Covid-19 Remain Active on Contaminated Surfaces?

The Covid-19 can remain active on contaminated surfaces for hours and, in some cases, for days. Below is a table of summary of common surfaces that you will come in daily contact either at home or your place of business:

Pretty scary! This is why it is super important to:

  1. Regularly disinfect common high traffic areas with common household cleaning solutions, and:
  2. Periodically deep disinfect your home and office by a trusted professional so that you won’t miss a spot and risk further contamination.

How to Inactivate the Covid-19?

Regular household cleaning solutions, soap and alcohol (between 60 to 80%) are known to break down the lipid membrane that is vital in holding the virus together. Take a look at the diagram below for the Covid-19 anatomy:

Without the lipid membrane, the virus will fall apart and is rendered inactive.

This is why medical experts keep telling us to constantly wash our hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or using a 60-80% alcohol-based hand sanitizer to break down any viruses that we could have picked up on our hands during our daily activities.

It is critical to regularly disinfect your home and business especially on surfaces that are frequently touched (e.g. doorknobs, tables, handles, and buttons, etc.)

But there will be a time, where regular cleaning is not thorough enough. It is highly recommended to periodically deep disinfect your home and business with professional-grade chemicals that are potent to the virus yet safe for humans by a trusted professional.
