CNN reports: Flush carefully. Study suggests coronavirus could spread in spray from toilet
Here’s a good reason to put the lid down before you flush: a new computer modeling study shows how a flushing toilet can send a cloud of little particles containing fecal matter into the air — fecal matter that could carry coronavirus.
It’s not surprising that the coronavirus has got the whole world worried and anxious. It spreads fast and can remain on surfaces for more than a week. People all over the world are scrambling to stock up on face masks, rubbing alcohol, soap, toilet paper, and other essentials.
But before you join the paranoia, understand that the coronavirus is nowhere near as contagious as the chicken pox or the measles. It’s also nowhere near as deadly as SARS, MERS, the smallpox, Ebola, and the bird flu. Hence, there’s no need to panic. Just know how to keep good full-body hygiene and be safe from the COVID-19 virus.
£100 million is spent annually to address 300,000 sewer blockages in the UK. A 2017 study found that 93% of the materials that cause these blockages are wipes flushed down the toilet.
The same thing is happening in the US. In October 2018, Charleston Water spent $140,000 to fix damages caused by a 12-foot long clog of disposable wipes. A similar clog happened again in June 2019 and cost another $60,000.
