Experiment showcases how quickly viruses can spread at buffets

14 Mai, 2020, 12:37 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

For instance, travel group Tui has announced it will limit classic holiday all-you-can-eat buffets "to a minimum".

Since the outbreak, several cruise ships, including the Diamond Princess and the SuperStar Aquarius, have fallen victim to infection clusters of the deadly virus. It's hard to see how they can resume normal service before a vaccine is found, especially given the high profile cases of passengers contracting Covid-19 and being quarantined on cruise ships in the last few months.

On May 8, Japanese public broadcaster NHK released a video that featured an experiment created to show how far a virus can spread from an infected person at a buffet-style restaurant. They found that bits of the paint had found their way on nearly all persons present in the room as well on several items on the buffet table.

Consulting unnamed experts on viral transmission, the show's hosts simulated a buffet on board a cruise ship. One person is designated the "infected" passenger and has fluorescent paint applied to the palms of their hands, as this is the most likely way of spreading germs.

As you can see for yourself, it was pretty much everywhere.

Paint could be seen on the hands of all ten participants, including three who ended up with paint on their faces.

The team discovered that the tongs, lids of the dishes, and the handle of the drink container were most to blame for the spread.

If you'd like some hope that things might return to normal in the future, however, they ran the experiment a second time with some social distancing "upgrades".

We're often told by health officials that viruses such as COVID-19 are able to survive on surfaces for a number of hours. Among them, one person is identified as the "infected" individual.
