Up to 27th March, the total infections by coronavirus (COVID-19) surpassed half a million, with the death toll of over 20000 by now. And the number continues to surge. The pandemic has already affected 175 countries out of the 197 in total since its outbreak in January.
When we are worried and anxious about the rapid spread of the pandemic, more we need to do is to take actions to protect ourselves and families. Here is what CDC suggests us to do:
- Wash hands often, use soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol;
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth;
- Social distancing, including avoid close contact with people who are sick and keep a distance with others;
- Stay home if you are sick;
- Cover coughs and sneezes;
- Wear a facemask when needed;
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily;
Some of these rules are easy to follow, like washing our hands often or staying home when you are sick. But some maybe neglected sometimes, for example, strict social distancing and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
About the latter, if we think about what we frequently touch from the moment we wake up, that might involve a lot of things. And the one on the top of the list for most people is their cell phone. And that’s totally understandable considering a smartphone nowadays is far beyond a communication tool.
It has so many roles that we can’t live without.
We use it as an alarm clock, the newspaper to get the news, a fashion magazine to follow the trends, a TV set or theatre to watch drama and movie, a computer to work and study, a camera or calculator; and we use it for social, video talk, games and so forth.
According to the study by a research firm Dscout, an average user touches his or her phone 2617 times everyday, and for heavy users, it is 5400 times daily. And that was only the data in 2016. There is no doubt that it gets heavier in the past few years with more tech innovation, social media explosive growth and entertainment blooming.
We take our phone everywhere we go, to a business meeting, to a restaurant, use it on a bus and subway, and even use it in a private or public restroom. I mean come on, there is no need to hide as you are not alone at all. We may wash our hands often daily, but how many of us clean our phone daily? If we don’t, does it really help for just washing our hands? Lets face it, it is a two-way relationship between our hands and the phone.
For each click, tap or swipe, we may transfer some germs to the phone from things we touched earlier, and for each click, tap or swipe, the phone transfers some germs back to our hands, then might to our face, mouth and food through the hands.
We make our cell phone a germs house. According to the research by scientists at the University of Arizona, phones carry 10 times more bacteria than most toilet seats. And other report even suggests 18 times more.
So surely we need to clean or disinfect our phone, if not daily, at least a couple of times each month. There are different ways to sanitize the phone; we can use a cloth and the water and alcohol (40% suggested) combination solution. But be cautious about liquid and some chemical sprays that may damage your phone.
Another new popular way is to use an UV phone sanitizer. So does it really work?
You probably already know that UV has been adopted in many devices or settings for disinfection purpose. For example it is used in hospital, even in the operating room to eliminate pathogens. And the dish disinfection cabinets in restaurants, many of them use the ultraviolet technology. It is also used in some household appliances to disinfect water, air, vegetables and more.
