Personal hygiene is very important during the time of Corona Pandemic. Though the words cleaning, disinfecting, and sterilising are used interchangeably, they are not the same.
During the corona pandemic, much has been spoken about personal hygiene, with the words cleaning, disinfecting, and sterilising used interchangeably.
First, cleaning. Cleaning is the removal of any visible particle, ranging from dust to fallen food. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) describes it as, “The removal of foreign materials (soil and organic material) from objects and is normally accomplished using water with detergents or enzymatic products.” This is also the first step to disinfection and sterilisation.
It is enough to clean our houses as we always did, if there are no family members who are infected. But this process does not kill the bacteria or virus; it instead reduces its percentage on the surface but If there are any people who are infected with the coronavirus, we should disinfect the common areas and the surfaces touched by the person, to avoid its spread.
Disinfect means to eliminate most harmful microorganisms (not including their spores) from surfaces or objects; inactivate viruses. it helps us to kill germs with the use of chemicals. This can be done with bleach, chlorine or any alcohol-based product.
