This particular strain of coronavirus has reportedly been responsible for 18 deaths worldwide so far, but the attribute that is causing most concern for the scientific community is the fact that is seems able to pass from person-to-person. The team at The Glove Club are keen to encourage better infection control in light of this development.
The infection can be fatal and is known to bring about severe pneumonia. It has also been connected with cases of kidney failure. Although the source of the infection is not yet known, a report describes how scientists suspect its origin may lie with bats.
The virus has been detected in a number of countries so far, including Qatar, Jordan, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, France and the UK.
According to a spokesperson for the World Health Organisation (WHO) the real cause for concern lies in the fact that “different clusters seen in multiple countries increasingly support the hypothesis that when there is close contact this novel coronavirus can transmit from person-to-person.”
What does this mean for healthcare institutions, public spaces, workplaces and ordinary individuals? The team at The Glove Club, one of the UK’s leading providers of infection control supplies, is to take hygiene standards even more seriously.
Where stringent hygiene policies are already in place – for instance, in care homes and hospitals – it is a question of managing stocks of infection control products and cleaning products efficiently, as well as making sure staff training in standards is up to date.
In other environments, like offices, homes and public spaces, a more proactive approach to infection control is advised to limit the ways in which dangerous infections can be spread in busy environments.
