Safer Together Through Sanitisation
The virus responsible for COVID-19 can exist on surfaces for extended periods of time. The exact role and potency of surface transmission is still the subject of much active investigation, but the World Health Organisation’s Interim Guidance focuses on the importance of reducing the potential for viral contamination in non-healthcare settings. For social or sporting events involving the mass gathering of human beings, this would typically involve deep cleaning and disinfection of all hard surfaces within a room, theatre, stadium in order to render the area ‘COVID secure’. This area though would fail to remain ‘COVID secure’ once people begin to enter.
