Some Chinese nurses fighting the deadly coronavirus in Wuhan,
China — the epicenter of the outbreak — have taken an extreme
measure in an alleged effort to improve efficiency: shaving
their heads.

Head-shaving videos surfaced on social media in recent days,
with state media reporting the drastic move is an effort to more
quickly put on hazmat suits while working in the virus-stricken
city.

“I keep the long hair for a long time, I did not even want to
cut a little bit. But in order to fight against the virus, it is
worth to shave all my hair,” nurse Ding Danyi, 26, told
NewsFlare, according to the New York Post.

Since the outbreak began in late December, doctors and other
medical professionals in Wuhan have taken to social media to
show how caring for thousands of patients has impacted their own
bodies. Recently, some medics shared photos of the marks and
bruises left on their faces from protective gear after working
round-the-clock. Other reports suggested medical workers have
resorted to wearing adult diapers while working because they do
not have time to use the bathroom.

More than 60,000 people have been sickened globally while 1,370
have died, according to Thursday estimates. While the majority
of illnesses have occurred in China, there have been 15
confirmed cases of the novel virus in the U.S., the most recent
of which was reported in Texas on Thursday.

Fourteen other cases have been reported across the country, the
first of which occurred in a Washington State man who has since
been released from the hospital. Other cases have been confirmed
in California, Wisconsin, Arizona, Massachusetts, and Illinois.
No deaths have been reported in the U.S., and the large majority
of cases still remain in China.

I think the report is a bit misleading.....


THEY SHAVE THEIR HEAD FOR EFFICIENCY, to make it easier and less work
to fight the virus by making their JOB more easily done.


That's very different from saying that a shaved head somehow prevents
the transmission or the virus its self.


I would think that for simple cleanliness and staying as clean as
possible that a shaved head would be better, given the puking sneezing
and snot hands that come with fever and respiratory infections.... if
those are in your hair it may transmit it to the nurse if they touch
their hair after being in a room with sick people, like touching door
knobs after the sick people.

I see people wearing masks but what they should also wear are the latex
medical gloves so that they don't touch things others have touched. and
then change them often.

We see the people spraying the walls but the places that the virus is
most likely transmitted are the doors and door knobs and car doors
handles and steering wheels and shopping carts and hand rails and money...

Possibly plates and re-usable eating utensils.
