Coronavirus: 5 objects that can contaminate you.


If Covid-19, contracts mainly on contact with an infected person, it also spreads through certain everyday objects, real nests of microbes. Mobile phone, shopping carts, handles … Here are the objects and surfaces with which you have to be extra vigilant.

Jewelry.

Washing your hands for at least 30 seconds several times a day is one of the main barriers to spreading Covid-19. The problem is that we often forget to remove our jewelry, which nevertheless represents an important source of contamination. In order to limit this risk, it seems wise to remove them throughout the duration of the epidemic.

Door handles.

As the coronavirus is transmitted via droplets, traces of Covid-19 may be found on the handles. This is also the case for all doors and elevator buttons. Care is therefore taken to wash your hands with soap after touching these surfaces or to rub them with hydroalcoholic gel. 

Money.

As they pass from hand to hand, tickets are likely to carry SARS-Cov-2, the virus responsible for Covid-19. However, as the WHO specifies,  ”  if you touch infected objects or surfaces and then touch your eyes, nose or mouth”,  you risk catching it. This is why it is important to wash your hands scrupulously after handling money and to prefer, as much as possible, contactless payment.
