Spread of Covid-19 virus through surface contact

When the covid virus was first detected in late 2019, the health experts said that the virus could spread through surface contact. The infected person could leave the virus on surfaces and an uninfected person could touch the virus on a surface and transfer the virus by toughing the eyes with the hand.

They recommended the frequent washing of the hands with sanitizer after touching surfaces.

I found this recommendation to be incredible. Although it was possible for the virus to be transmitted through this mode, it was highly unlikely.

Anyway, it led to increased sale of sanitizing solutions and a booming manufacturing and distribution industry for a short period.

I felt that it is easier for the virus to be transmitted by breathing the air emitted from an nearby infected person.

There were several reports that the surgical mask was not effective in stopping the transmission. However, I reasoned that if the mask does reduce the transmission by 90%, it would be quite useful for most situations.

It would be sensible for a medical person who attend to covid infected persons many times in a day to wear a higher quality mask, such as the N95 for protection. I reasoned that this is not necessary for ordinary people who walk outdoors.

The fear of covid transmission through surfaces still linger with paranoid people.

Although the health experts do not mention transmission through surface contact now, they do not dispel it either. It is safer for them to allow the fear to linger, so that they can be “on the safe side”.

I am not a health expert, so I do not wish to challenge the experts. But I wish that the experts can use their common sense and speak out on this issue, so that the people can return to their normal lives as soon as possible.

  • It has been spoken many times by top experts that the new variants of C19 can survive up to a few days on formites.

    Tan is obviously not reading the right thing.

    Seems the virus is more deadly in cold weather

    Amazing! Tech can see that Kin Lian not reading the right thing?
    Is this hope or false dawn.

    TRE Tech:

    Tan is obviously not reading the right thing.

  • Spec Ops:

    White House Covid expert Dr Jha said that masks don’t stop transmission, it was useless from the start and served to act as S&M for the natural aristo-rats.

  • Calm Down:

    TKL has zero qualifications in medical science, epidemiology, vaccinology or immunology. I can also add he is not a Cellular or Molecular Biologist. He is seeking attention.

    Every time we breathe in, we suck in untold quantities of micro-organisms (parasites, virus, germs, etc.) Our nose has amazing filtering abilities plus our innate immunity takes care of most of the unwanted invaders.

    If some manage to get through, they have to fight their way into our blood system and it is a tough fight if one has even basic knowledge of Cell Biology.

    If even a bit of infection takes place, our body has an internal vast army that will go after all invaders, develops life-long memories, etc.

    I suggest TKL spend months and years learning before trying to seek attention here.

    We live because of our natural immune system. The Covid jabs have over 1,000 plus adverse effects, is proven to weaken our natural immune system and even cause long term harm that are yet to be fully investigated.

  • Air borne:

    Covid tend to spread through air borne.
    Better to reduce the spread through airborne such as maintaining clean and healthy indoor air to International wellness standard etc.

    Tech: Agreed. That is why I have been leaving my DIY Negative Ions generator on 24/7/365 for the past years since the pandemic started.

    The CCP Virus primarily enter cells through binding with ACE2 receptors. Taking ARB actually helps to block the spike protein of the CCP virus to attached to the ACE2 receptors.

    And if unfortunately the CCP virus enter the cell already, there are anti-viral e.g. Paxlovid for treatment. It works by messing up the RNA sequence and preventing replication of the virus.

    The Vaccines are useless. From the beginning of time, this is no vaccine for RNA virus e.g. HIV. Or else, Men will have no fear of going to Geylang to have a good time.

    Tech: Bingo, since the pandemic, I have been saying that the supposed vaccines are merely hoaxes, there are NO vaccines available for RNA viruses or else flu, HIV and C19 would no longer exists.

    @Tiew Pig
    Cannot form a logical argument then label people ‘Anti this and that’.
    You must be a real ‘Pig’ – the name you gave yourself.

  • 现在疫情都接近尾声了, 可是所谓的新冠疫苗却搞到人心惶惶, 很多人都不敢跑步和做激烈运动了, 又不敢去睡觉, 怕一睡就睡到火葬场去了! 这就是盲目相信那些半桶水的所谓医学专家和别有用心官员的后果,活的真累,真可悲啊。

    Heard some vaccinated individuals also dare not bonk with many pattern chut liao, all do in small space where the only position is missionary. lol

    Ah it is a good time to clear away some unproductive old folks who feed on social benefits. Heaps of BB-boomers around the world and billions in CCP china too.

    Thank you CCP-virus, once the sick, old and frail are being get rid of, the country can concentrate on resource to manage hard core crisis in hand. And if all things fail again, can always go war to expense more lives. It helps to reduce the need to feed hungry mouths and get rid of those who might turn against you.

    Better than need to eat one another’s child or exchange a human with few kilos rice.
