The O2 FRESH Nasal Cannula Cover keeps nasal cannula prongs from contacting fomites when taken off the patient's face. A fomite is an object or materials which are likely to carry infection. 

"It is worth noting that many environmental swab samples contained MERS-CoV despite daily cleaning and disinfection of the patients' rooms."

"Once a fomite is contaminated, the transfer of infectious virus may readily occur between inanimate and animate objects, or vice versa, and between two separate fomites (if brought together)."

"Currently, laboratory studies, epidemiological evidence, and disinfection intervention studies have generated strong indirect and circumstantial evidence that supports the involvement of fomites as a vehicle in respiratory and enteric virus transmission.”
