Why Covid is spreading more in societies
With the COVID spreading like wildfire all over, some of these multi story colonies in Delhi found that people were getting infected in blocks one or two stories above or below the infected block while there had been no contact at all between
these people including usage of lifts etc.
Few doctors analysed this problem and identified the common sewage lines which run up and down in these complexes. As u are aware, the faeces ejection has a high viral load. The problem can be mitigated to a large extent by keeping your WCs flaps closed throughout the day, and more importantly, when used, the flap MUST be closed before flushing WC.
U may consider sharing this with your friends in other societies. Colony Secy may then issue advisories to the residents.
Additional suggestion - you can go one step further- if you are COViD positive or have mild symptoms - you should consider putting disinfectant or a strong cleaning product into the water of your toilet bowl ‘ BEFORE’ use, this would inactivate the virus that your faeces or Urine put into this water and then the flushed matter would be safer for everyone.
Please share this widely in public interest more
