What are effective measures against infectious diseases ②

Interruption and Safety of Bacterial Transmission

As mentioned above, most infections are caused by the transmission of bacteria through hand contact. Therefore, continuous blocking of transmission will reduce the spread of infectious diseases. For this reason, although it is also adopted in Japan, the US CDC's infection control guidelines strongly recommend hand washing. Enforcement of hand washing is to prevent the transmission of bacteria, etc. on the hands to other things through the hands when the hands touch something. However, everyone is concerned that even if you wash your hands thoroughly or disinfect your hands with alcohol, your hands will touch many things, and in some cases, germs will quickly adhere to your hands. Since it will be propagated to, it will not make much sense. Ideally, if it is possible to continuously prevent the growth of bacteria even if they are attached to the products around you that you touch, or if it is possible to continuously antibacterially, it is very important to implement this together with the enforcement of hand washing. It is considered to be effective as an infectious disease countermeasure. There are various products around us that have a lot of opportunities to touch our hands all the time, so-called infection risk products, but we thought that textiles would have the greatest risk of infection this time, so we chose this product as an infection control product. identified as material. Textile products alone are not sufficient as a countermeasure against infection, but by verifying that this product is effective as a countermeasure against infectious diseases, we believe that it will be relatively easy to expand to other products. increase. Below is a demonstration example of reducing the spread of bacteria using fibers in the actual field.

In any case, along with excellent properties such as antibacterial effects, it is considered necessary as an absolute condition that it is first and foremost necessary to be continuously safe for the human body and the environment.
