in Order to avoid the infection with corona virus, Hygiene is the A and O. the Bonn researchers have studied it, where in the budget the viral load is high., researchers gain more and more knowledge about the Coronavirus. Scientists at the University of Bonn have new results on the viral load in the house . There are also a few Surprises.
in Many places, breathing people, because the situation is relaxed to the Corona-pandemic slowly, and researchers are gaining more and more knowledge about the new Virus. Nevertheless, the crisis is not survived for a long time and a lot of fear of a second wave. Twelve scientists, the virologists Hendrik Streeck, the University of Bonn have dealt now with the question of where in the household of a Corona-Infected the viral load is highest.
Coronavirus, researchers in viral load in the quarantine check-households
The study was first published on the Preprint Server "medrxiv.org". So far she is still in the Peer-View process, which means that the results have yet to be verified by other researchers . They analyzed the viral load to 21 randomly selected quarantined households in the district Heinsberg , where the Coronavirus is particularly strongly affected. In each household, at least one Infected was. The researchers took a total of 119 swabs of doorknobs, remote controls, furniture, and 66 samples from the waste water from showers, sinks and toilets*. Also room air-15 samples have been taken.
Here lurking in the household at the common corona virus
The samples were tested by the researchers via a PCR Test on the genome of the Coronavirus. Overall, the virus load was in the home environment as a low and were infected although of 43 adults 25. The highest virus load was found in the bathroom: In 15 percent of the wastewater samples, the genome of Sars could be CoV-2 found. The sink and behind the shower was slightly less than 20 percent are most likely to be affected.
Surprisingly, the exposure of the tested surfaces was rather low: Only two door handles, a remote control and a piece of furniture corona were found to be viruses. In the air, no viruses were discovered. If the virus were contagious, could not be found in the study.

summary of the Coronavirus study in the budget
From the result, the researchers conclude that the smear could play by touch, apparently, but not as big a role as previously thought. Also the infection via aerosols appears to be surprisingly unlikely. However, were taken only a few samples.
Instead, the study seems to confirm that the infection, most likely via droplets . That's why scientists advisable, in the flush Toilet to close the lid and pay attention to Hygiene around the sink and shower.
