IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET COVID-19 INFECTION THROUGH FIREWOOD?
HOW POSSIBLE IS IT, AND HOW DANGEROUS IS IT?
Unfortunately, the virus covid-19 has not passed and people, especially the elderly, often ask whether it is possible to get infected through firewood and whether the virus will not spread if, for example, an infected person took this log, and then threw it into an open fireplace or sauna and breathe it. So we answer, we are careful to make sure that we have healthy people working for us, if you observe minimal symptoms a person goes on sick leave. According to the WHO, the virus can live on an object under conditions favorable to him from a few hours to a few days, that is, even if, although we exclude this option, the wood was cut by a man with covid-19, it takes about 5 hours to put in the car and at the moment we do it a day before coming to the client, that is a total of over 24 hours, and this means that the risk of falling ill from firewood by touching them is minimal. Now, as for the spread through an open fire, at a temperature of 100 degrees, according to the same WHO, covid-19 dies, and the temperature in the fireplace reaches 900 degrees, so here, too, all safe. Take care of yourself and your loved ones and stay healthy.
