QuoteMinisters 'fear coronavirus could be spread by farting in a confined space'

Some UK Government ministers have privately expressed concerns that coronavirus could be spread through farting, it is claimed.

They have pointed to evidence that suggests Covid-19 could be spread when an infected person breaks wind in a confined space such as a toilet.

Tests have revealed that the virus can be present in faecal matter, though the science on whether flatulence could spread Covid is not definitive.

One minister, who wasn't named, told the Telegraph that they had read "credible-looking stuff on it" from other countries, and there had been evidence of a "genomical-linked tracing connection between two individuals from a [lavatory] cubicle in Australia".

A load of anti-pantsers smelling each other's farts.

So selfish. I don't wear pants and trousers to protect myself, but to protect others. From gasping for air.

I'm pretty sure that all the fecal bacteria (which is cataclysmically, woefully small really) produced by farting is retained by your pants and trousers. So unless you've got a thing for having people fart bare-arsed into your face I really doubt it's that catastrophic. If a basic cloth mask can massively produced exhaled particulate surely two layers of arseguard is like wearing a fucking chemgrade respirator on your bottom bung bumpipe?

If you can smell it, doesn't that mean you are inhaling particles? Or are farts more like light, just energy waves or something?

'wear a cork' campaign on its way.

This could be my lifeline to not having to go back to the office. Might try the advice a physics teacher told me that I never tried out, apparently knocking back a pack of refreshers in one go gives you 'terrific wind'.
