  1. Hi, While I was confined during the first occurrence of the pandemic in France, I started to look as many of us about info on how the pandemic would affect our work and what could be done , should be done. I had fellow in Asia starting decontaminating instruments, nut it was done finger in the wind. That did not really suit me , finding somewhat reliable information that did not just scratch the surface of were sales peach , turn out to be challenging . Ultimately I decided in April/May to write a paper aimed at my peers aimed to help them setup there decontamination process if they chose to, so So I wrote a paper about Decontaminating SARS-CoV-2 (Covid19) and quartet musical instruments, meant to fellow Luthier, and I start sharing the paper in may with a few colleges and send it to a couple violins association during the summer. As far as fomite cros-contamination is concerned, It might comes to you as a surprise but even back in Match/April some of the infectiologists I contacted , while acknowledging that CoV virus family could be transmited via fomite, that did not believe that fomite were a major vector in the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic (none of the cluster they investigated at the time were fomite related).. But here is a small anecdote: As one of them told me that I should be fine with manipulating violins. I ask If I would be fine sharing a respirator (mask) or a mobile phone, and the answer was "of course not" , so I explained that violin was played chin and mouth close to violin breathing on the violin with (sorry musician but we know as we clean them) projection from breathing on the instrument. He had not realized that , and then revised is statement... Telling me that still making an UVC cabinet was an overkill and that an alcohol on a swipe would be fine. So don't take for granted everyone know the specifics of your domain :p As far as usage, I decontaminate instruments in between players trying them, and before giving them back after having worked on them. It should be noted that since I wrote the paper Dr. Anthony Griffiths, Associate Professor of Microbiology at Boston University’s School of Medicine did release a paper validating the radiation dose mentioned in my paper (to be more accurate he studied the radiation dose on SARS-CoV-2 , while I only use inferences from dose known for other Humand Covid), it turned out that the dose I use was safe by a good margin. Constructive criticisms and comment on focused on the paper are welcome, but I would kindly request that you refrain from turning this topic in a political / polemical / thing about the Pandemic. My aim is not to convince anyone of something he does not believe in, but to provide some information so so widely available that you may use if you like. Best F.
