A video went viral which shows how easily the coronavirus can spread in a public place and transmit from one person to another.
The Japanese broadcaster NHK conducted the experiment in collaboration with medical experts and the results are eye-opening.
At the beginning of the video, it can be seen that fluorescent paint has been applied to the hands of a person who is acting as a coronavirus in this experiment.
The idea behind the video is that if a person coughs or sneezes on their hands, the virus is there.
Ten people, including the victim, were present at the scene and ate for 30 minutes.
It has since been revealed in the black light how far the paint and the virus have traveled.
In the video, it can be seen that this paint has reached many dishes while it is also present on the hands of other people, but it has even reached the faces of 3 people.
The broadcaster said the paint reached others through the lids on food containers, while drink handles also became a major source.
Medical experts say the video is an effective way to spread the message around the world about how easily and quickly the virus like COVID-19 can spread.
Particles from sneezing or coughing can stay in the air for minutes or hours. Similarly, these particles can be contacted on various objects for hours or days that is why people are advised to avoid touching the eyes, nose and mouth, or at least to wash your hands thoroughly before doing so.
Washing hands with soap and water is very powerful weapon against these kind of viruses than we think.
Soap increases lubrication of the skin, so rubbing it well can kill germs and flush them out of the water.
This sounds easy, but the fact is that most people don’t do it right.
Some time ago, a video went viral showing how people get rid of germs by washing their hands.
The video uses black paint and white gloves instead of soap to teach people the right way to wash their hands.
In fact, it is the black paint that helps one to understand which parts of the hands most people ignore while washing.
The video begins by rubbing the palms together, then clears between the fingers and other parts.
At the end of the video, every part of the man’s hand (gloves) is covered with black paint, which explains why the World Health Organization insisted on proper hand hygiene to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
