When you wash your hands for twenty seconds, you’re not just washing viruses down the drain. Soap destroys the coronavirus. Read more: bit.ly/2WqzEfo

Oh really? So a deadly virus (so deadly and clearly deadly because otherwise we wouldn't have been in a lockdown and being told we couldn't visit our family members) can be killed? Well then people, we're coming up to the end of May, so why not get the soap and wash our hands for approximately 20 seconds and then tell Boris Johnson that we all have clean hands and then the life can go back to the way it used to be

I just learned that the "hand wash" I have been using is not actually soap! I discovered it is advertised as soap-free! SO be warned - not all hand wash is actually soap.

It doesn't take soap molecules to destroy the virus in 20 seconds, it happens within fraction of seconds but it takes 20 seconds soap molecules to get all over your hands.

yeah! it's ridicolous to say and repeate it to people! Btw TREAT your smartphones/mobiles as your hands! Clean it (don't wash it) 'cause you touch it more often than your face.

Dear Vox: great video, but viruses DO NOT have organelles inside (like bacteria or other cells do), just the nucleic acid chain (a very long single strand of RNA in the case of SARS-CoV-2)... ;-)

We should help people get thru this pandemic. Los Angeles should have fire department create streets filled with soap bubbles. Maybe at that point, the mayor of Los Angeles will let people out to be accidentally hit by vehicles.

Not all viruses have envelopes made of lipid and their shell is made of glycoprotein, so I wonder if the dissociation effect applies to virus without an envelope as well? I always thought the most dominant effect is that the surfactants remove the virus from the skin and allow them to disperse in water to be flushed away.

Would soapy wet wipes (travel packs) break the fatty covid-19 layers down? As we touch our faces so much should we not wash our faces more often, maybe with a soapy wet wipe?

Virus which can be killed by soap......has no vaccine or cure ? Strange
No No
No No 13 dager siden
Not really since I do not think you even understand what a vaccine is. A vaccine is a strain of isolated virus (from a person who had the disease and became immune/antibodies) that creates an antibody response that is good enough to confer protection, but, not strong enough to avoid attenuation (virus). Since viruses always mutate ... it takes a while to find that perfect candidate. ... Also, there has never been a vaccine for any coronavirus... (there are lots of them) every single time it failed, or made coming into contact with a wild virus even worse.

Like any other vaccine. You isolate a virus, one that has been somewhat weak in the wild. You attenuate it (weaken it further) and then test to see whether the antibodies produced work or not. By that time it's very likely a good amount of people will have natural antibodies anyways.
