As cases surge across all the countries, more than half of countries require wearing face coverings while in public to help stop the spread of COVID-19. When it comes to personal protective equipment (PPE), face masks are a given, but if you want more protection, you may want to add a face shield to your routine too.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, a new coronavirus began circulating in humans. This virus, called SARS-CoV-2.
SARS-CoV-2 can spread easily from person to person. It is mainly spread by inhaling tiny droplets released when an infected person talks, coughs, or sneezes, large droplets can also land on surfaces.
Disinfecting and sterilizing are two types of decontamination, a process that makes something safe to touch. The purpose is to kill enough germs, so the risk of infection is extremely low.
Decontamination is different from cleaning, which can get rid of dust and dirt but may only remove some of the germs that are present.
