Can Farts Spread COVID-19? This Australian Researcher Claims So! - Times of India

The horror. The horror. So, what is the PPE for this? Depends soaked in Lysol? Will we have to take activated charcoal along with Remdesivir? What about politicians and celebrities who flatulate orally? Enquiring minds want to know the answers!

Times of India article

Coronavirus has grappled the world in fear. With the usage of masks and adopting other sanitary measures made compulsory, people around the world are adopting all neccessary measures and taking preventive action to keep themselves safe from danger.

However, researchers say that there is a growing possibility that there can be something far more contagious (and might we add silent) carrier of the mysterious viral disease-your farts!

Yes, you read that absolutely right.

If you thought farts could just stink, think again. A new body of research suggests that farts might be the newest form of transmission to spread the COVID-19 infection.

So far, more than 2.5 million people have been infected worldwide and the death rate has crossed to 1,77,641 as of today (April 22).

What does the research say?

An Australian doctor, appearing in a podcast recently alarmed citizens about a possible link between flatulence and the spread of coronavirus infection. While the doctors talked about the nationwide prevention by using masks, the doctors said that farting, albeit without wearing clothes could actually lead to the spread of the nasty infection.

He also made a suggestion that apart from social distancing, people, by precaution do not try to fart close to each other:

“I think that what we should do in terms of social distancing and being safe is that … you don’t fart close to other people, and that you don’t fart with your bottom bare.”

Does this hold true?

Even though nobody really likes to fart next to someone, Dr Andy Tagg, the lead Australian researcher who did the study said that farts, like faeces, contain aerosol particles which can possibly transmit and act as a carrier of the disease.

Thank you cheeki, Mr Sizzle and Chris. This aspect suggests new slogans for C 19 social responsibility, such as "Covid 19 - My Ass!" ;o)

An Asian worker who flew into the country recently warned us this, he said to several people over again, with concern... "Never go to the toilet at airports, when it flushes then it spreads everywhere in the air." So maybe there's some element of truth to it. It's a more possible way of a naked outlet.
