IMPACT TO OUR LIVES
This virus has added so much stress and discomfort to our lives. We know this organism can survive on a variety of surfaces, in varying temperatures, from 2-4 days. However, these variables are what has created such uncertainty. We’ve lost our ability to come and go freely, we don’t know the certainty of product availability, and we have had major disruption to our jobs, schools and family-life. The experts are working feverously to find a vaccine and a cure. But until then, our best response to the virus is disinfecting,and sanitizing. We know these processes play a major role in the fight against the coronavirus and COVID-19. While these processes are not new or unique, they need to be emphasized. We are at war with an enemy we can’t see, nor can we predict its path.
We know that limiting our movement and physical contact is one way for slow the spread of the virus. However, those limitations alone are not enough, thus the importance of sanitizing and disinfecting. We can take measures into our own hands to limit the spread of this virus. Sanitizing and disinfecting processes that we can utilize to limit the spread. Sanitizing is the process and products removal of micro-organisms.
