If your’re one of the billions of people around the world to use public transport daily for commuting to and from work, then you are sharing a lot more than what you think with your fellow commuters.
There have been numerous research studies of mass public transit, carried out in cities across the globe swabbing and testing handrails and elevator buttons, revealing high levels of microbes that we are sharing and swapping everyday.
These studies highlight the levels of contaminants people encounter whilst just getting to and from work every day. It also highlights that we need to raise awareness for the importance of proper hand and surface hygiene both at work and in the home.
Check out this video from Kimberly Clark Professional showing a typical Germs Journey in a company washroom.
In 2003 In Hong Kong, nearly 300 people were killed with the emergence of the SARS virus – during its first recorded outbreak—this has led to lasting cultural and public health changes. People still regularly wear masks and are cautious about spreading germs, and the city now features many public hand-washing and antiseptic stations. Companies such as MTR Corporation, the company that runs the transit system, diligently disinfects and coats the trains with antibacterials. Similar polices should be implemented in other major cities, especially during flu season.
Poor overall hygiene, especially poor handwashing is contributing to the spread of germs. Bacteria is passed to everything we touch, banknotes and credit cards have been found to contain high levels of bacteria ( 26% and 47% respectfully). Kimberly Clark Professional has introduced the Scott Essential washroom system, an efficient and reliable range of products for any office or high traffic washroom.
