The 2019 Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), caused by extreme ART 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has easily spread all over the world. At the end of June 2020, there were more than 5 million confirmed cases and over 500,000 deaths. The features of this disease show that SARS-CoV-2 can be spread by droplets extended during close contact and fomites. Potential airborne distribution was also envisaged in healthcare facilities because of such aerosol-generating practices 1,2. After identification of the virus in stools, the position of the fecal–oral route in indoor environments must still be determined. Nevertheless, it remains important that fomites, direct contact and the alleged fecal–oral path are of relative significance. In clinics, there has also been major contamination. The CDC Weekly 2020 reports that 1716 of 44,672 COVID-19 cases in China reported their presence by 11 February, 2020. In order to protect health staff, it is also important to consider the risk of infection in a hospital setting.
