Using VIGA touchless sensor faucets can prevent infection during COVID-19

Before the United States imposed sanctions on Iran, it didn’t take long for the new crown virus to reach outright to Wuhan and spread to various provinces and cities in China. China’s prevention and control has been very effective recently, and it has won three weeks of precious time for the world, but other countries have started to fall off the chain, and the epidemic situation has exploded.

Compared with domestic, most foreign protection measures are not enough. Not only is the country “stopped” nationwide, daily wear of masks, frequent hand washing, more disinfection, more sanitation, etc. also mobilized well; the medical staff rushing to the forefront are also equipped with masks, protective clothing, and goggles. To be foolproof. But there are some omissions in the best possible strategy, such as washing your hands!

During the epidemic, everyone knows that washing hands frequently is the easiest, most effective, and most cost-effective way to prevent infections, but even if many people wash their hands, they may not really reduce the threat of bacteria and viruses.

There are three reasons:

1Wrong way to wash your hands

2Insufficient time for hand washing

3 Contamination after washing hands

Everyone can wash their hands, but not everyone knows the right way to wash their hands. The correct and effective way to wash your hands should be to wet your hands first, then take a small amount of hand sanitizer on the palm, and evenly apply it on the back of your hands. At the same time, open your fingers with both hands and wash your fingers across. After rubbing each part, wash the hand soap with running water, and finally dry it with a disposable paper towel or induction hand dryer.

For effective handwashing time, the Canadian Public Health Agency recommends that you wash your hands with soap or liquid soap for 20 seconds, and the World Health Organization recommends 40-60 seconds. Most people usually feel that they have washed their hands once they rush, so the effect of washing their hands cannot effectively remove bacteria.

The last point is contamination after washing hands. According to the Russian satellite network, there are a large number of bacteria on the faucets, soap boxes, toilet paper boxes and faucet handles of the sink, which may endanger human health, especially during the outbreak. After washing your hands, the most likely source of infection is the handle of the bathroom faucet!

In fact, Shanghai issued the “Code for Hand Bathroom of Medical Staff” in 2009, which explicitly requires hospitals to provide non-touch faucets in key operating departments such as operating rooms, maternity, newborns, and stomatology, but other departments in many hospitals in other regions Even public toilets do not use sensor faucets. During the epidemic period, the situation of residual bacteria and germs in the hospital’s faucet handles became a bit tricky. If someone touched the faucet handles with the new crown virus and rubbed the eyes with hands, the possibility of infection would increase greatly.

The same is true in hospitals with severe epidemics. Even if the medical staff has multiple protections, it is inevitable that they will have to take off the protective break. If they come into contact with the handle of a faucet that the patient has touched or is infected with the virus, the danger is It goes without saying!
