Scientists are still learning a great deal about COVID-19 and how it spreads, but they have learned it can be transmitted via “aerosolized feces,” according to a new study.

The research, published by Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, notes it can be transmitted via a phenomenon known as “toilet plume,” placing greater importance that people close the toilet lid when flushing.

The article goes on to state the following:

In an interview with Forbes, Purdue University professor of mechanical engineering Qingyan said there is a “very easy way to help prevent the spread of coronavirus: ‘Close the lid and then flush.’”

The report cites four methods of COVID-19 transmission:

  1. direct/indirect contact,
  2. droplets,
  3. airborne (passing through the air)
  4. fecal-oral transmission

    I just read an article published by The Atlantic which bashed Trump for the worsening numbers of people sick with the virus. I am not familiar with the Atlantic, but I wonder if it is Democrat leaning.

    Do people not close the lids when flushing the toilets! This was a rule taught to us when we were children! How can people not know this! Public rest rooms have no toilet lids! If you need to go out of your hoe for a long period of time, make sure you will not need to go to a public rest room.
