I just want to make one thing very clear: The mainstream news and official health organizations worldwide seems to say that washing your hands will protect you from Coronavirus infections - although washing your hands has some effect, the virus mostly spreads though the air - the Coronavirus is airborne and spreads though the air. Don't be fooled by those sources that try their hardest to prevent the truth coming out to the people.


The new coronavirus spreads mostly mostly person-to-person contact within about a 6-foot (1.8 meters) radius, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). People with COVID-19, which is the disease caused by the coronavirus, spread viral particles through coughing and sneezing. The particles can land in the mouths or noses of those nearby.


No mention of handshakes!

If someone infected with the Coronavirus sneazed as long ago as 9 days before you enter into a room, you could still be infected, 22 studies shows:


In fact, not a lot is known about the COVID-19 virus at all, so researchers are turning to similar coronaviruses, like SARS and MERS, for answers. Reviewing the literature on all available human and veterinary viruses within this family, encompassing 22 studies, researchers have found that the human pathogens can persist on surfaces and remain infectious at room temperature for up to nine days.

Nope, that’s not what the article is saying. The virus is spread through the droplets from coughing and sneezing, like an aerosol. You put your hands on where the droplets land then rub your eyes then viola you’ve caught it. Washing your hands can stop the cycle. reply to: MerkabaMeditation

FALSE!

From your link:


Unlike some extremely contagious pathogens, the virus is not thought to spread via smaller droplets that can remain airborne for long periods of time. Measles, for example, can live in the air for hours after an infected person coughs or sneezes. This is not currently believed to be the case for SARS-CoV-2. 


Wash your hands.

that means that the thousands of different suppliers of these things have all come to an secret agreement? my pharmacist around the corner has been bought up and it is said that supplies are expected within the next 14 days. the conspirators are obviously badly prepared.

washing your hands is generally sound advice regardless if the wuflu is airborne or not.

If you stand next to someone with Coronavirus it won't help you if you wash your hands afterwards...

This is why DTOM had to put up a disclaimer about health related threads.

Your insanely wrong by the way. Even if something can transmit through the air... Hand contact is still the primary way to get a lot of bugs.

If you breathe in the virus, washing your hands even with battery acid will not help you - that is my point. But the mainstream media spams only the "wash your hands" advice; but that will not help you from the airborne virus infection.

The mainstream news and official health organizations worldwide seems to say that washing your hands will protect you from Coronavirus - which is utterfly false - the Coronavirus is airborne and spreads though the air.

Coronavirus is spread through the air if you are in reasonably close proximity to an infected person , droplets will last longer on surfaces than in the air so the washing of hands is still important

Unlike some extremely contagious pathogens, the virus is not thought to spread via smaller droplets that can remain airborne for long periods of time.

Did you even read the article and notice how it mostly spreads?

The new coronavirus spreads mostly mostly person-to-person contact within about a 6-foot (1.8 meters) radius, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The virus , one needs to cover the face completely, how I don't know.
When entering your home, start taking off your shoes.
When shopping were them plastic throw a way gloves
Don't collect change with bare hands.
Never use public toilets from now on, (no toilet paper in stock)
Please don't let you children use public toilets from now on, if you do I will tell this, you are a .... that's right don't let your children use them toilets
When using the ATM machines from now on, use plastic gloves to push the buttons on getting the money
All money will be infected
Don't use elevators under any means
Don't pump gas without plastic gloves


these above are not MIM sayings, but words from those in the know (street talks) for those that know what I'm talking about

The obvious answer is that spread is via both means .

After you've washed your hand do your face as well .

Not wearing your shoes in the house and washing your clothes after contacts will probably help too.

Clean off light switches door handles TV remotes kettles fridge handles etc etc.

A clean house is a health boon anyway , but then again remember there's the theory that good old garden soil both drowns out and physically attacks viruses via the plethora of microlife contained in it.

Bleach is one way , soils another.

The obvious answer is use both. Just like most often a result has more than one cause contributing to it. Always been a wonder why ppl don't think in the plural or think multitasking is some kind of new and clever idea that only women understand. It's either low average iq or # education , the later preferred but it's probably both , eh ?

You are misunderstanding vectors of transmission. Some of what you've said is somewhat true insomuch that if a carrier is standing next to you and coughs or sneezes in your general area then you very likely would become infected via airborne transmission via your respiratory system. In this specific case, infection via inhalation / exposure to the respiratory system, washing your hands after the fact would not make a difference.

However... If the person sneezed without any of their expelled particulates reaching your respiratory system - but landing on surfaces you subsequently touched - or your skin? Then hand washing would prevent infection. The virus, AFAIK, does not infect via absorption through the skin.

More to the point - let's assume it's not a person standing next to you but an infected person who came into contact with a surface directly before you - shortly after coughing or sneezing into their hand or wiping their face... A public restroom faucet, store shelf or item on that shelf, doorknob, railing, bus or train seat etc... This is where sanitary discipline / hand sanitizer / hand washing will make a profound difference.
