This Is How Fast COVID-19 Spreads At Buffets And Restaurants

We’re not going back to normal anytime soon

With many areas in the Philippines facing a lifting of restrictions on where they can go and shop, some might be thinking that we may be transitioning back to normal soon. Unfortunately, until we find a vaccine to the virus, all the things that we used to enjoy are still pretty much off the table for the meantime – even simple things like eating at restaurants and buffets.

This is made painfully clear by an experiment conducted by NHK, which had a person simulate how fast a virus like COVID-19 could spread, placing fluorescent paint on the hands of one person, and had a group of 10 people dine.


In around 30 minutes the paint had managed to transfer and spread to every individual present and was also on the face of three diners.

This experiment clearly shows that the risk of contracting COVID-19 is still present even as countries around the world slowly lift restrictions to try and mitigate the effect of the virus on their economy. The best way to combat the virus is to stay at home and avoid eating out even if restrictions are lifted.
