They have revealed watch a rhinovirus (the causative agent of cold) and a flu A virus.

Traces have been found for 50% of luggage trays - it is the highest rate among all studied surfaces. On unitazny seats of these viruses it isn't revealed at all.

Results of a research have been published in the BMC Infectious Diseases magazine and can help to improve policy of fight against spread of infectious diseases in the world.

She adds that these results will help to introduce new technical improvements during the planning and the equipment of the airports.

of Finavia - the company operating the airport of Helsinki, - I have said: "At the Finavia airports all sanitary and hygienic procedures conform to requirements of bodies of health care: all surfaces are daily cleaned, and all trays, etc. regularly wash". Scientists emphasize: their conclusions don't mean that the found signs of viruses are capable to cause diseases. However other researches show that microbes can live on different surfaces till several days. with
