Our mobile phones are one of the commonly used items on a daily basis, touched more times than anything else throughout the day as we browse Facebook, chat via Whatsapp and surf the net. With such exposure and constant use, it’s important that our phone’s are cleaned regularly in order to help prevent the spread of diseases such as Coronavirus.
How dirty are Mobile Phones?
With our phones being in such constant use and often rarely cleaned, it should be no surprise that these smart devices can harbour a ton of bacteria. What’s amazing though is that on average a smartphone will carry over 25,000 bacteria per square inch, which is dirtier than a kitchen worktop (1,736 bacteria per square inch), your dog’s food bowl (8,643 bacteria per square inch) and what’s worse, your phone’s screen carries more bacteria per square inch than your average toilet seat.
How can my Mobile Phone carry Caronavirus?
While Coronavirus mainly spreads via person-to-person contact, it is possible for the disease to land and live on a surfaces. So if particles spread through coughing or sneezing were to land on your smartphone, this bacteria could easily be spread further through a user touching their device and if the same user were to touch their mouth, nose or ears, then Caronavirus could be caught.
How to prevent Caronavirus and bacteria building up on my phone?
