Can blowing ass be an untold method of spreading COVID-19 to others? Dr. Xander Van Tulleken believes it’s possible. He’s raised the issue of the coronavirus fart factor citing the work of Dr. Andy Tagg. Earlier this year, Dr. Tagg was researching another virus, SARS-CoV-2, and found 55% of his test subjects showed traces of it in their poo for as long as two-and-a-half weeks after exposure. Dr. Tagg was also able to log how far talcum power shot across the room from someone’s high-powered butt blasts.
Before your tuchus gets all atwitter, consider a 2001 experiment where subjects were asked to fart on a petri dish placed five-centimeters away…first with pants on, and then with pants off. The pants-on poot petri dish stayed clean. The pants-off poot petri dish show bacteria that had “sprouted” overnight, though no sample was harmful in that particular test.
The bottom line…is that docs like Tulleken are leaning towards the theory that it could be possible to spread COVID-19 through your butt vapors (but it’s also possible to win the lotto…so…). But hey, if you’re gaseous and worried, the best play is to continue self-isolation, and always wear pants. Come to think of it, if you’re going to be a toxic fart monster at all, then you should do it wearing pants…naked farts are just plain rude…and, no, there’s nothing here that suggests you should wear pants on your head as a protective mask. That’s just stupid. << see audio to right >>
