B-4Metro THE CINCINN VI I FNQHRl K Sunday, September 29, 1991 Study: Virus can live 10 days Organisms spread illness by surviving on hard surfaces The researchers found that up I I 1U1 QUALITY BY ELIZABETH NEUS The Cincinnati Enquirer A group of Cincinnati researchers has proved that a common virus that causes severe diarrhea in children can survive for several days on a hard surface. "One would always suspect that off the doorknob is a usual route of transmission, but this is the first time it's been shown," said Richard Ward, associate director of clinical virology at the James N. Gamble Institute of Medical Research in Mount Auburn. The virus causes a diarrheal disease called rotavirus, which affects 95 of all children before age 3. It's similar to what adults call "stomach flu" it causes vomiting and diarrhea and can last for several days. Rotavirus is spread by fecal-oral contact, which can occur when people fail to wash their hands after changing a baby's diaper or using the bathroom. Ward and his researchers who also are studying possible rotavirus vaccines mixed the virus with nonfat dry milk and let it dry on a hard surface. to 30 of the virus remained active on the hard surface up to 10 days later. Their report was published in this month's issue of the Journal of Clinical Microbiology. "From our point of view, the important thing is that we have shown that this is a real route of transmission," Ward said. The study, done for the makers of Lysol, also looked at how efficient the disinfectant spray was at killing the virus, and found that spraying the hard surface and wiping it off did the job.
