Corvid-19 Drainage Concerns

As you are already aware we have a serious life threatening pandemic called the Coronavirus.

The Corvid-19 virus attacks the lungs and respiratory tract which can be life threatening.

With the limit of toilet rolls and sanitary products people will and have started to use use various items as a secondary measure.

Baby wipes, paper towels, face wipes, cloths etc are some that folk are now using, these block your drainage system and can cause serious blockages in your toilet, drain or sewer system.

If you are experiencing drainage blockages, toilets or sewers overflowing, do not leave it to chance it will go away.. it wont!

Overflowing drains do have some severe environmental issues and have been mentioned that they can and probably will transmit further infections.


Faecal Matter Transmission (FMT) JCS Drainage In a recent study of coronavirus patients in China, over half of patient’s faecal samples remained positive for Covid-19 for a mean of 11·2 days after respiratory tract samples became negative for the disease, implying that the virus is actively replicating in the patient's gastrointestinal tract and that faecal–oral transmission could occur after viral clearance in the respiratory tract (Wu et al., 2020). No cases of transmission via the faecal–oral route have yet been reported, which might suggest that infection via this route is unlikely in quarantine facilities, in hospital, or while under self-isolation. However, potential faecal–oral transmission might pose an increased risk in contained living premises such as hostels, dormitories, trains, buses, and cruise ships. Respiratory transmission is still the primary route for Covid-19 and evidence is not yet sufficient to develop practical measures for the group of patients with negative respiratory tract sample results but positive faecal samples. Further research into the viability and infectivity of Covid-19 in faeces is required. Asymptomatic and undiagnosed Covid-19 carriers still shed the virus via respiratory tract and faecal matter. There might be as many as 5 to 10 undetected cases for every known case (Writer
