World Health Organisation Acknowledges Evidence Coronavirus is Airborne

Update 24/07/2020: Now face masks are mandatory in public places, it is now even more essential to review the products which can help keep you safe, and keep you more comfortable in the long run. Specifically, our EVAA+ Face Covering Probiotic Hygiene Spray mentioned in this article can make a large difference to the comfort of your face covering.

As lockdown lifts, it comes as a great relief to many – the chance to return to normality and for businesses to have a chance of surviving… But, the protective measures must be continued.

In an open letter due to be published this week, 239 scientists from 32 countries call for greater acknowledgement of how Coronavirus could be spread. In particular, because airborne transmission involves much smaller particles (which can remain in the air for much longer periods of time) it means Coronavirus can be transmitted to others over distances greater than one metre.

We’re firm believers that the scientific community should be listened to, and they were clearly pointing out many risks of Coronavirus well before it was announced as a pandemic. The scientific community is urgently calling for tougher measures altogether and the need to take protective measures where possible. They highlight two areas in particular: fitting air conditioning units with powerful new filters or UVC light – and making face masks mandatory in public…

It’s likely that we’re going to need to wear face masks for a long time to come if we want a hope of a ‘normal’ life, such as keeping businesses running, and being able to take a holiday, and more.

The big problem, that ultimately leads to the virus spreading at an exponential rate, is that it’s often people with no symptoms that spread the disease. It’s thought you’re infectious for around two days before showing symptoms, but often people are asymptomatic (i.e. they carry the virus but never show any symptoms). This is one of the strongest arguments for people to wear face masks in public.

To further support the argument for wearing face masks, a modelling study from the universities of Cambridge and Greenwich suggested that wearing face masks in public combined with on/off lockdowns per area as required, could prevent a ‘second wave’. The researchers suggested that even homemade masks with limited effectiveness could dramatically reduce transmission rates if worn by enough people, regardless of whether they show symptoms.

So, with the advice that when indoors (in public) you should wear a face mask, the importance of ensuring the face mask is comfortable is even more important. Our probiotic Hygiene Spray is a perfect companion to face masks, as it helps keep the mask comfortable for longer. It also reduces the number of times it needs to be washed (which is important, as the more the face mask is washed, the less effective it comes as the permeability increases).

The added benefit of our Hygiene Spray, is that it lends itself to a wide range of uses. As travel restrictions ease too, if you’re taking the chance to travel abroad, you can spray your airplane table and even on your hands for added protection.
