Covid is a commonplace activity that makes you ‘twice as likely’ to contract coronavirus.
A new study looked at various activities people do on a daily basis to determine the risk of CORONAVIRUS.
One everyday activity in particular has proven to be the most dangerous.
Covid can be spread through droplets or aerosols.
Inhaling or coming into contact with these respiratory particles through your eyes, nose, or mouth can infect you.
You can, however, contract the virus from contaminated surfaces.
The most dangerous activities for catching COVID-19 have been identified in a new study.
SAGE’s Virus Watch Study looked at everyday activities to determine which ones posed the greatest risk of contracting Covid.
More than 10,000 people in England and Wales were studied.
The data compared the second wave of the pandemic, which occurred between October 2020 and April 2021, to a period in which no restrictions were in place, which occurred between September and November last year.
The riskiest activity, according to their findings, was shopping during both time periods.
They discovered that going shopping once a week during the second wave increased the risk of contracting the virus by more than one-half.
While going grocery shopping on a weekly basis with no restrictions posed twice the risk.
Playing sports outside was the next riskiest activity, scoring 1.36 percent.
The researchers speculated that this could be due to the social aspect of the activity rather than the sport itself.
Going to a restaurant, pub, or bar, as well as taking public transportation, were all high-risk activities.
During the no-restrictions period, the risk of testing positive after those was around 1.3 times.
The bus appears to be the worst mode of transportation for catching Covid, according to the data.
Going to a club, like going to a pub or bar, posed the same risk.
Visiting a hairdresser, barber, nail salon, or beauty parlour was the least dangerous activity.
The study also found “no good evidence of increased risk” from going to the movies, theaters, concerts, or indoor sporting events.
The new study, on the other hand, only looked at data prior to the emergence of Omicron.
The Omicron variant first appeared in the United Kingdom on November 27th, and cases began to appear in the middle of December.
The new variant is thought to be more transmissible than the previous one, but it causes less severe disease.
According to government data, there were 178,250 new cases reported yesterday.
Everyone should get a booster shot and cover their faces.
