2020 will always be remembered as the year the shit hit the fan. But sadly, it didn’t stop there. It kept circulating. Welcome to life inhale. It’s Time to Talk About How Toilets May Be Spreading Covid-19. “Researchers found high concentrations of bioaerosols when a toilet with no lid was flushed. How many airborne particles, exactly, are we talking about? Upwards of 1 million additional particles per cubic meter of air. Not all of the aerosols generated will carry the virus, of course. But, let’s be clear: When you flush the toilet, you’re breathing in toilet water, and whatever is in that toilet water — including viruses and bacteria. The study also found that bioaerosols spread around the room and lingered in the air. In fact, basic aerosol physics tell us these bioaerosols will stay aloft until one of four things happen: they settle out onto surfaces, they are removed through dilution, they are removed through filtration or they are removed by your lungs.” (All of a sudden, injecting Lysol into your body doesn’t seem all that crazy…)
