A little-known fact about the Norwich is that many household cleaners and napkins do not kill them. Clorox and Lysol Disinfectant dishes claim to have killed 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria, but it does not include noroviruses. The best solution is to remove the surface of the bleach solution – mix between the half-shelf and a cup of bleach with a gallon of water – or use bleaching health care wipes such as Clorox Healthcare Bleach Germicidal Wipes that are hard to find in stores but sell on websites like Amazon. Allow the bleach to sit on the surface for at least five minutes, ideally 10 as it takes up these flexible clues. Hydrogen peroxide purification agents are another effective option.
If a family member does not arrive in time on the toilet, you will need to clean it thoroughly. Angela Fraser, a Clemson University researcher who studies vomiting and facial cleansing (seriously!) Indicates that you wear disposable gloves and glasses. Dr. Perencevich said the face mask is also good because it does not allow you to touch your mouth. In any case, "really make sure you do not touch your face when you're doing it all," he says.
To prevent viruses from getting in the air while cleaning, cover the liquid with paper towels or shake litter or sawdust before collecting them in a plastic bag. Then close it with a ring and discard it. Turn the area with soap and water and disinfect it with one of the above-mentioned cleaning agents.
Do not also clean where you are saw liquid. Dr. Fraser recommends disinfecting a radius of 25 feet, including walls, table legs, and other surfaces that could be inadvertently sprinkled with the virus. (The good news is that when you're done, you'll have 30 minutes of exercise a day.)
If you have to disinfect carpet or upholstered furniture, you probably will not be able to use the bleach because it will cause color damage. If you have a steam cleaner, use it for five minutes at 170 degrees Fahrenheit, Dr. said. Fraser. Dr. Perencevich said that another option is to spray it with a hydrogen peroxide cleaner after testing that it does not cause damage.
If the laundry or laundry rinses, either wash them in a "hot" or "disinfect" setting (ideally half a cup of bleach if the bleach is not damaged) or put them in a plastic bag and the quarantine is several days or weeks, because every time you handle dirty clothes, you risk spreading the virus, Dr. Perencevich. Consider also the designation of specific dishes, bowls and cups for sick members of the family, as some dishes do not exclude all noroviruses. And do not let anyone who is sick prepare food for someone else.
Hold on science and do what you can
Speaking of things that do not kill norovies: Drinking grape juice or apple apple will not keep you healthy, despite what your friends could say. (I know, I really wanted to believe it.) These "drugs" are supposed to work because they change the pH of the stomach, which is too acidic for norovirus growth. But "norovirus grows in the small intestine, so changing the stomach environment does not really make you," Dr. Wikiversity.
If it all sounds amazing, I hear you. Do what you can. A is good news: Some people are naturally more resistant to noroviruses due to genetic mutations affecting sugars found on the cell surface. People with blood types B or AB are also more resistant. (Of course, I'm a type O.) And most of the time, the norovers are more unpleasant than dangerous. Maybe it's an "unpleasant" word too generous, but the other words I'm thinking are not suitable for printing. I'll scream at my next toilet when I'm sick, but that's for sure.
