A certain pop superstar sang about “bad blood” several years ago, before she and Katy Perry buried the hatchet, as the saying goes. But there’s still a lot of bad blood out there these days, carrying pathogens that have everyone hiding out at home as much as possible.
OSHA says, “Blood-borne pathogens are infectious microorganisms present in blood that can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus that causes AIDS. Workers exposed to blood-borne pathogens are at risk for serious or life-threatening illnesses.”
Fortunately, Impact Absorbents has the spill clean up solution for such situations: the XSORB Biohazard Absorbent Response Kit with Facemask, Gloves and Coveralls. Fully compliant with OSHA’s Blood-borne Pathogen Standard, this convenient and economical kit has everything you need to clean up blood and body fluids, protect and disinfect.
Each kit contains:
- Tyvek coveralls with booties

- A pair of high-risk protective gloves
- Biohazard and standard disposal bags

and detailed instructions for using all products.
With all the precautions healthcare professionals take, and with everybody else on board the smart prevention train, it’s a good bet this novel coronavirus will soon be the stuff of novels, rather than a planetary scourge. And bad blood will return to its original meaning of ill will, not ill bodies.
But with all the time we’ve spent social distancing, we also wonder whether a side benefit might be: we’ll be so glad to be able to see and hug one another in person again, any bad blood that once existed will vanish along with COVID-19.
