CIPHE urges public to flip ‘n’ flush
A public health campaign has been launched by the CIPHE to reduce disease spread from toilets. Following the COVID-19 outbreak, the Institute has urged the public to flip down the toilet seat before they flush to help stop the spread of coronavirus and other germs.
Kevin Wellman said, “This has long been discussed and evidence shows that toilet plume could be a contributing factor in the spread of disease. We should take all the measures available to help stop the spread of coronavirus and other illnesses such as staphylococcus and E. coli.”
