Human Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

About Coronavirus: What You Need to Know

Steri-Clean has the only effective protocol and training to ELIMINATE the viruses from any environment. 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a virus that affects the respiratory tract and is spread with person-to-person contact.

Symptoms: According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) reported illnesses have ranged from people with little to no symptoms to people being severely ill and dying. Symptoms may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 after exposure. Symptoms can include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.


Prevention & Treatment
The CDC believes the best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus and recommends everyday preventative actions to help prevent it from spreading:

• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

• Avoid close contact with people who appear to be sick

• Stay at home if you are sick

• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, throw the tissue in the trash, then wash your hands thoroughly

• Clean and apply disinfectant to commonly touched objects and surfaces (See next paragraph)

Infection Control Steri-Clean® Minnesota  

Superbugs are strains of bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi that are resistant to most of the antibiotics and other medications used to treat the infections they cause. Certain types of superbugs include resistant bacteria that can cause mild urinary tract infections to life-threatening sepsis and pneumonia. A superbug’s resistance and the rapid rate at which it spreads are part of what makes them so dangerous. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria may be more present in certain areas that require regular sterilization, such as hospitals and other healthcare facilities.


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), antibiotic- resistant infections lead to more than 35,000 deaths in the United States each year. 

Superbugs can be spread in a variety of ways, including blood transfusions, contact with bodily fluids, sexual intercourse, and even through touch. The best way to prevent the spread of superbugs is to limit contact with another person’s blood or bodily fluids, and always wash your hands after coming into close contact with someone.


How Do Superbugs Spread?

• Blood transfusions

• Close contact with bodily fluids

• Sexual intercourse

• Skin-to-skin contact

• Close proximity contact (air borne)

• Some superbugs can live for extended periods of time on hard surfaces 

• The bacteria can be hard to remove from medical tools that are placed into the body, such as catheters, breathing tubes, or viewing scopes, even after cleaning


Ways To Prevent Infection

Preventing infection is one of the most crucial ways to fight against superbugs. This involves practicing safe hygiene in various ways, such as: 

• Regularly washing the hands with warm water and soap 

• Completely drying the hands after washing them

• Avoiding coughing or sneezing into the hands

• Washing the hands after handling raw animal products

• Cooking foods to safe temperatures, which can help kill any germs present

• Washing the hands after interacting with someone who is sick, or avoiding contact altogether, if possible

• Misusing antibiotics (such as taking them when you don't need them or not finishing all of your medicine) is the "single leading factor" contributing to this problem

A New String of Superbugs?

Many scientists believe that the COVID-19 pandemic will result in a new wave of superbugs. Superbugs intensify public health crises like Coronavirus because patients with compromised immune systems are more likely to be affected, as are those in congested care settings. And, in a growing number of cases, those individuals who survive the virus itself have not only a compromised immune system, but the secondary infection might already be resistant to – or develop resistance because of the prescription medications.


How Infection Control Works

A professional biohazard cleaning company such as Steri-Clean® Minnesota can eliminate these superbugs by decontaminating infected areas and creating a safe, clean environment. 


Below, is how the professional cleanup process works:


  1. All critical and high-traffic areas are processed, making them ready for decontamination

  3. Smart technology devices are employed to deliver uniform application of all chemicals ensuring all sides of a target area are treated. Smart Technology equipment provides superior results with less labor. Therefore, decreasing downtime in operations

  4. Data-based conformational testing is performed on multiple surfaces to ensure the biological activity is at or below hospital grade levels
