The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us several painful lessons. As of December 2020, the United States is experiencing more than 200,000 cases per day and a new high of 3,000 deaths per day. Initial vaccine deployments are underway, but this is a pivotal time as we move through the current surge. There is still a critical need for infection prevention methods against COVID-19.
It's been over 100 years since the last major pandemic swept the world, forcing protective measures and human behavior changes to curb the spread. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to bring tragedy and changes to our everyday lives.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has been the most severe in recent history, it isn't the first pandemic, and it will not likely be the last. All pandemics and epidemics leave some imprint on human behavior; COVID-19 is no exception. While we take lessons from past pandemics, the one lesson to carry into the future will be preparing for future outbreaks.
Be honest, how often do you clean your phone screen and case?
With COVID-19 still surging worldwide, increased attention has been placed on preventative actions, such as handwashing, cleaning commonly touched surfaces, wearing a facemask, and staying home when sick.
Disinfectant is having its moment in the spotlight, due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic. Maintaining a clean facility and home is now essential. With the increased emphasis on disinfected surfaces comes increased misinformation and misconceptions. Purchasing a disinfectant can be challenging as the list of active ingredients are lengthy and often difficult to understand.
