How UV Light Can Help Fight COVID-19

You may be washing your hands frequently and wearing a mask, but few people are aware just how dirty many of the items are which we all keep in our bags and pockets.

 

The Germs on Your Phone

 

 

A study published in the 2009 journal “Annals of Clinical Microbiology and Antimicrobials” revealed that of the 200 hospital staff members’ phones tested, 94.5% were found to be contaminated by some type of bacteria. 

 

“Nobody ever cleans or disinfects their phone, so the germs and bacteria just keep building up,” explains Dr. Charles Gerba, a professor of microbiology at the University of Arizona, adding that the most common germs found on phones are E. coli, influenza and MRSA. Dr Gerba explains how contaminated other everyday items are too.

 

Each square inch of your cell phone contains roughly 25,000 germs, which is way more than the number of germs found on, say, a toilet seat (1,201) or kitchen counter (1,736), since both of those are washed regularly (we hope). Gerba says that since we use our phones frequently, they remain warm, creating the ideal breeding ground for bacteria. “With the advent of touchscreen phones, the same part of the phone you touch with your fingertips is pressed right up against your face and mouth, upping your chances of infection,” he adds.

 

The Germs on Your Credit Cards


Credit cards are regularly swiping their way through germs. A study conducted by microbiology students at St Petersburg college in Florida found half of all credit cards sampled at local malls, stores and hospitals tested positive for MRSA. And a study carried out by researchers from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine revealed one in 10 bank cards to be contaminated with faecal organisms.
