Cell Phones Can Transmit More Than A Signal!

Attention Swipers: Infectious Agents Are Loving Your Cell Phones

Why do you cover your face but not your cell phone?  Do you realize that your cell phones are being EXPOSED to viruses and they can breed on your cell phone for nine days? Before you pick up that smart device to check for coronavirus news updates, you need to beware.  You could be the next stat!

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), coronavirus is stubborn and it likes to cling onto surfaces. Scientists are learning that the virus that causes covid-19 disease is stable for several hours to days in aerosols (air) and on surfaces. This recent finding has caused a new fashion trend.

Facemasks, respirators and single-use gloves are now the new norm. From shopping malls to emergency rooms, people everywhere are donning personal protective equipment (P.P.E.) when out in the public. Yet the one item that should be covered to protect against covid-19 isn’t, and this puts individuals at grave risk to infection or cross-contamination

Germophobic shoppers will wander aimlessly down sidewalks and aisles covered in their P.P.E. but ironically lead the way with extended arms holding thier device in front of themselves. An exposed smart device in potentially contaminated public spaces can counteract the purpose of your protective gear. Many individuals will place their phones down to disrobe their protective gear then immediately go right back and handlle it - yikes! 

“Cell phones are particularly vulnerable because grubby fingers mindlessly touch dirty surfaces and then repeatedly pick up phones “

According to German researchers, coronavirus can live on an inanimate surface like metal, glass or plastic which incorporates virtually all of the materials used to make cell phones, laptop computers and personal tablets.  It can also cling to shoes, sneakers and boots. The dreaded covid-19 virus could be breeding on your phone, and for long periods. An article in the New York Post on March 9, 2020 suggests the deadly coronavirus can live on cell phone surfaces for up to nine days.Cell Phones Carry COVID-19

Charles Gerba, a professor of microbiology and immunology at the University of Arizona stated “You do not have to sneeze on a cell phone to transmit disease-causing organisms.” What we found out in studying virus movement on surfaces in office buildings is that you touch a surface with a virus on it and then you place it on your cell phone.” (a door handle, for example.) “You then go home or to another location and you touch your phone again and, say, touch a table moving it to another location — great way to spread viruses around an office and home.”

The more scientists learn about novel coronavirus, the more you’ll want to to keep that cell phone clean!

Researchers from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention recently found that people affected by COVID-19 have live virus in their stool. This disgusting bit of information means that the virus can and is likely spread through fecal matter as well as droplets from sneezing and coughing. And given that many folks have become accustomed to bringing their phones with them into the toilet as they do their business, means they can become breeding grounds for unthinkable germs.
