COVID-19 Prevention and Important Information

Since December 2019 the world has had to deal with a new challenge – the COVID-19 virus.
From the beginning of this health crisis, the most repeated and consistent recommendation by the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control has been to wash hands in regular intervals. As a provider of smart hygiene solutions, it is our duty to help with this critical task and to share our knowledge of how to best practice regular hand hygiene.

Micro-station also helps in ensuring that the hand-washing is performed correctly every time.


Soap dissolves a virus’ structure

Soapy water is totally different. Soap contains fat-like substances known as amphiphiles, some structurally similar to the lipids in the virus membrane. The soap molecules “compete” with the lipids in the virus membrane. That is more or less how soap also removes normal dirt of the skin (see graphic at the top of this article).

The soap molecules also compete with a lot other non-covalent bonds that help the proteins, RNA and the lipids to stick together. The soap is effectively “dissolving” the glue that holds the virus together. Add to that all the water.

The soap also outcompetes the interactions between the virus and the skin surface. Soon the virus gets detached and falls apart like a house of cards due to the combined action of the soap and water….., the virus is gone!
