How Viruses Can Easily Infect People Through Their Eyes
By Jeff Rense
After being expelled from an infected person, any virus can survive outside the human body for varying lengths of time.
It will first remain active in any non-hostile liquid, wet or moist medium. When that moisture dries out, a virus can then remain dormant in a dry state for weeks or even months, depending on the type of virus.
When someone coughs or sneezes, viruses are thrown out of the infected body into the air. Take a sneeze, for example. Unless covered up by a hand or forearm, etc, a sneeze will eject, at over 100 miles per hour, as many as 50,000 individual aerosolized micro droplets of saliva and other moisture for a distance of between 19 and 26 FEET. This is data from recent MIT studies. Think about that.
This aerosolized blast of mist from an uncovered sneeze or cough will be carryings viruses and bacteria and each droplet can hang in the air for minutes or longer, depending upon the size and weight of the droplet. An uninfected person can then walk into and through some of those particulates and inhale them and easily become infected.
Or, some of the tiny aerosolized mist can easily land in the moist human eye and gain entry to and begin to infect that person's body...without the uninfected person ever even thinking about the eye being a portal to disease infection. Or, an uninfected person can touch a contaminated surface...a door knob, a counter top in a store or on a commonly used pen or a credit card key pad and leave potentially disastrous microbes behind. The potential to pick up live virus out in public is enormous.
"These tiny droplets float through the air and you can get a cold, the flu or another illness when you come into contact with them. Sneeze and cough germs spread far and fast," explained Dr. Stephanie Kelleher, a Geisinger family physician.
A physician in Wuhan China became infected with Coronavirus recently and says he is certain he became infected through his eyes while working with infected patients.
Touch a virus and rub your eyes...and you immediately re-activate it in the moisture.
Or, walk through an area where someone has sneezed or coughed.
Remember, a simple uncovered sneeze can throw out about 50,000 aerosolized microdroplets, many containing viruses and bacteria, at 100 mph traveling a distance of from 19-26 feet. leaving these microdroplets suspended in the air all around them. They can be immediately taken into the moist areas of the outer eye directly from the air...or put there by touching your eyes with contaminated hands.
This is really old news...the eyes have always been a gateway to infection.
Furthermore, the Ebola virus has been confirmed as LIVING in human eyes...
Any wet or moist non-hostile surface or medium can be a home to Coronaviruses or any virus or bacteria.
How long can viruses and bacteria live in a dry state outside the human body depends entirely on the type of virus or bacteria and other environmental factors. In the case of the TB bacteria, that time period can be DECADES.
We don't know what the longevity of the coronavirus is outside the human host body as of yet but a conservative projection would be at least 5 to 7 days. HIV has been shown to live in a dry state outside the human body for far longer than that.
To keep yourself as safe as possible when out in an area where infections are known, one must PROPERLY wear an N 95 rated face mask WITH A MOISTURE BARRIER...and your should seriously consider having eye protection, too.
Just ask the flu doctor in China who is fighting for his life...
Further to this, whenever you are in a store, a building, an office and especially a jetliner, you are going to be exposed and forced to breath recycled air that can easily be carrying, and transmitting, any number of infectious viruses and bacteria.
WASH YOUR HANDS and keep your hands away from your face until you do.
When you are out and about, here are just SOME of the PRIMARY disease transmission points to be aware of. Countless thousands of people use and touch these places sharing incredible numbers of bacteria and viruses...
Retail Store Credit Card Terminal Keypads
Any General Public Use Or Bank Pens
Store Door Handles
Public Restrooms (very risky...aerosols and direct contact)
And...Don't Forget To Clean Your Car's Steering Wheel Which Has Germs From Most Everywhere You've Been
And That Nifty Smart Phone Touch Screen....
And...Your Computer Keyboard and Mouse...Crawling With Microbes
