The greatest risk of vertical transmission mainly comes from transmission between upper and lower units in the same building through drains- Locations with a high risk of lateral transmission include main entrance door and windows that are close to neighbouring units- There are drains in both the kitchen and the bathroom, but vertical transmission in the bathroom carry a much higher risk
WAYS TO REDUCE THE RISK OF VERTICAL TRANSMISSION INCLUDE:-
DO NOT turn on the bathroom exhaust fan when the bathroom windows and bathroom door are closed, because this will cause negative pressure in the bathroom causing contaminated air in the drain to be sucked into the bathroom;- DO NOT open windows if the window is in close proximity to the external drain pipe;- Water trap should be kept water filled. Water should be poured frequently into the drainage (including the washing basin, kitchen sink, floor drain, bathtub and shower cubicle) frequently. Due to installation, disrepair or design problems in some buildings, the water in the water trap can often be sucked away when water passes the flat through the downpipe, and so it is essential to pay attention to frequent water addition into the drain and keep water trap filled with water;- DO NOT turn on the bathroom exhaust fan when the bathroom window and door are closed.
WAYS TO REDUCE THE RISK OF LATERAL TRANSMISSION INCLUDE:-
Main entrance is a high risk spot. If the windows and doors are closed while the kitchen or bathroom exhaust fan is switched on, there will be a negative pressure in the indoor space resulting in air being sucked into the unit through the main entrance door gap , thereby increasing the risk of horizontal transmission.
