Covid 19 Virus Covid 19 Virus

A pandemic was declared when the Coronavirus Disease of 2019 (COVID-19) was getting worse and unmanageable, inflicting millions of people around the world. The main purpose of this declaration is to provide a ground for each and every country for the declaration of a state of calamity.

As a result, affected countries may utilize their respective budgetary allocations specifically allotted for this type of medical emergency.

The virus is a microorganism that may transfer from one person to another through the nasopharyngeal entry. COVID-19 is both an infectious and communicable disease and this is the main reason why the virus causing it is a dangerous pathogenic organism, unlike other pathogens which are only considered as infectious but not communicable.

To ensure the safety of everyone, it is indispensable to have routine chores of cleaning up your surroundings regularly and thereafter to undertake the method of disinfection to make sure that all pathogenic organisms are eliminated.

Cleaning up is just the performance of cleaning the environment without taking the act of killing the pathogens. In short, you are just removing the visible garbage and specks of dirt. But if you undertake to eliminate a number of pathogens, you will be carrying out the process of sanitation. In essence, you are reducing the number of viruses when you sanitize your environment.

However, due to the deadly feature of COVID-19, it is highly recommended to eradicate them by undertaking the thorough disinfection method within your surroundings, because this procedure undertakes the use of the concentrated solutions to remove or inactivate viruses or bacteria on surfaces.

That being said, the difference between the above-cited terms may clearly be explained through the identification of the stages.

The stage of virus termination should always start at the first level of cleanup, then it is required to either sanitize or disinfect. If you only want to reduce the number of germs, you just need to sanitize, but in case of COVID-19, you need to remove them; disinfection, therefore, is to be undertaken.
