- A video went viral after it showed how germs and viruses can easily spread among people
- The video showed that an entire room can be contaminated immediately if there is only one infected person
- The substance used as “germs” was seen on utensils, tables, and even on the faces of some participants
- Health experts urged the public to observe proper hygiene and washing of hands frequently to prevent the further spread of COVID-19
An experimental video went viral on social media after showing how germs and viruses can easily spread with just one person infected.
KAMI learned that the experiment showed a buffet restaurant setting.
As reported by CNN Philippines, the experiment was conducted by public broadcasting organization NHK with the help and guidance of health experts.
The video contained 10 people coming into a restaurant. One person was singled out as the infected person. The people were allowed to enter the setting normally as they would.
A liquid substance was used as the “germs.” After the black lights were on, the substance can be seen spread throughout the room. It was on the table, utensils, and even faces of other participants.
"What the video demonstrated, is that it will spread to surfaces and to people very efficiently," John Nicholls, a clinical professor in pathology at Hong Kong University said.
“I think it really highlights the need of what people have been saying about hand hygiene to stop the spread of disease,” he added.
Everyone is urged to always wash their hands properly to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 across the globe.
As previously reported by KAMI, the Department of Health (DOH) recorded a total of 11,618 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Philippines.
