Coronavirus - Objects and Areas of Extreme Danger! #Covid2019

The Center of Disease Control says the coronavirus can remain viable in some surfaces like card box, metal and fabric for some time.


While it is transmitted more effectively via droplets from an infected person when they sneeze and cough, it is best to be very wary of surfaces on which the virus can remain viable. More so in an office set-up where most things are shared.

1. Office Gate: Normally, gates into offices remain locked for security reasons. This requires the employees entering or exiting to repeatedly touch the same handle. This becomes a central distribution point for the virus.

2. Book and Pen When Checking In: Still at the gate or reception, if your company does not have a biometric system to sign in, normally a book and pen are used for that check-in process. Both become a central distribution point for the virus.

3. Biometrics: Even if your office uses fingerprints to sign in if that surface is not cleaned after every use it can collect and distribute viruses.

4. Lift Buttons: Not many people have adopted to pressing lift buttons with their elbows. Imagine how many people in a day touch the same lift buttons at your premises. If you touch the same finger to your face, you might get infected by the virus.

5. Office Microwave Buttons: If your office has a shared microwave, almost everyone will be opening and closing it; pressing the buttons. This becomes another central distribution point for the virus.

6. Toilet Flushing Handle: There is no guarantee that people clean toilet handles with water and soap, sanitizer or bleach after every use, so they can be great virus pools.

7. Office Door Handles and Knobs: Unless your office doors are motion-sensitive, pretty much everybody who walks in and out of them will have to touch the doorknob or handle. This makes them a potential distribution point of the virus.

8. Office Kettle Handle: If you are sharing a kettle, think twice about its handle. This might be a distribution point for the virus.

9. Water Dispensers: If everybody touches the buttons, push handles, spigot or touch their cups and used bottles to the taps, they can aid the spread through the office.

10. Paper: Office and paper are almost synonymous, and most papers are transferred from one department to the other. These can be a very serious conduit for the transmission of the virus.

11. Windows: How many times do you open and close windows obviously touching either the surface, sill or handle? And how many people do the same in that same office? You need to watch out for this potential health hazard.
12. Office Telephone: It is one of the last things on your mind and you subconsciously receive interdepartmental calls without caring to first sanitize the receiver.

13. Sanitizer: So your office has placed sanitizer in every department? But how many people pick the container up and replace it in a day?

14. Money: A lot of money gets exchanged in office set-up, and not everyone follows that up with handwashing or sanitizer. It then becomes a serious transmitter of the virus, contaminating everyone who touches it, even after it has left the organization.

15. Office Cups: Most of them are not disposable, which means they are shared. This is something to think about seriously.

16. Chargers: If we all had a dollar for every time a workmate asks us to give them our chargers or USB cables we would be rich. People share chargers every time and again. Again, sharing the same is another big cause for concern.

17. Taps: Once you are done washing your hands for a whole 20 seconds, if you immediately touch a faucet or tap that has been touched with an infected person it might hook you up with the virus.

18. Newspapers and Magazines: Most offices have shared newspapers and magazines that can act as a perfect conduit for the virus. Think twice about sharing these reading materials.

19. Office Keys: Be very wary when opening doors, lockers and common cabinets with shared keys. They may act as conduits for the spreading of the virus.

20. Air Freshener, Toilet Spray: So you are done with business, washed your hands but you want to leave the toilet as clean as you found it so you reach out for the air freshener which has been touched by pretty much everyone in the office. That’s risky. Do tit with extreme caution.
21. Stapler: For most offices, there usually is one or even two staplers to be shared among everyone in the office. Beware on sharing the same office equipment.

22. Keyboards and Mouses: The next time you invite the IT guy over to help you with a problem on your computer, be very careful. They need to sanitize first before touching your computer.

23. Curtains and Other Fabrics: Coronavirus can remain viable on fabric, so you may want to treat every shared fabric in the office with extreme caution.

24. Other Shared Surfaces: They include a light switch, Sellotape, chairs, CPUs, flash disks, printers, photocopiers and sockets.

This articles clearly shows us that one can get infected with the virus from almost any physical object. The office convenes people from different places and areas, and you may never know who your colleagues have been interacting with. Potentially, you can even carry the virus to your homestead and infect everyone there. If we could possibly limit interactions, and even work from our homes.
