The News is all about Coronavirus and Iran is one of the countries with rapidly spreading, Corona Virus or Covid19.
There are a lot of myths about this disease, which feeds on people’s lack of information and legitimate worries.
The Virus itself can be transmitted quite easily if you are in close contact with an infected person through the respiratory droplets by coughing or sneezing if you are within 2 meters.
There are possibilities of transmission from infected surfaces as well. However, how transmittable it can be from objects like letters, packages or rugs has been compared to other similar viruses by experts
We do receive some rugs from Iran so just to put peoples mind at rest I thought it best to inform you of a few relevant points with regard to our business.
How To Stop Fabrics/ Clothes From Spreading Germs?
According to NHS UK “clothes should be washed at higher than normal temperatures and with bleach-based products to minimise the transmission risk..”
Because rugs are sometimes bought in poor hygiene condition, all our rugs are washed with a chlorine-based product to make sure they are thoroughly disinfected.
How Long Does the Virus Survive on Surfaces?
According to livescience.com “..if this new coronavirus resembles other human coronaviruses… for as long as nine days..”
From the time of packing it takes longer than 14 days for the shipment to get to us, as apart from transportation time, there is customs clearance, which can take two to three days in Iran alone.
