A vital presence in the planet’s ecosystems, bacteria are found almost everywhere. Indeed, it is said that there are more bacteria on one human hand than there are people on Earth. While most are harmless, some can cause sepsis – a life-threatening illness caused by the human body’s response to bacteria entering the bloodstream.
Potentially deadly bacteria can be spread via air droplets, through food, or by contact with an infectious person. In addition, and significantly for those in the architectural and design sectors, they can also be spread via contact with infected surfaces.
Poor surface specification can increase the risk of that surface becoming a reservoir for pathogenic organisms. Specifiers wishing to minimise the risk of bacterial infection need to be aware of the paths they can take – in terms of design and materials – to prevent their transmission.
