Curtains for “Hygiene Theater”

It’s not impossible to get infected with SARS-CoV-2 from contaminated surfaces—but the risk is extremely low—less than 1 in 10,000, the CDC confirmed yesterday,reports The Hill.
The updated guidelines emphasize the much greater risk from direct contact, droplet transmission, or airborne transmission, undercutting the insistence on the strict sanitization protocols dubbed “hygiene theater.” Good old-fashioned soap, rather than disinfectants, will suffice to reduce risk in most situations.
The Takeaway: “Now everyone should revert to regular cleaning (stop overcleaning) and pay attention to the air instead (ventilation + filtration),” tweets Virginia Tech’s Linsey Marr, giving the CDC props for “changing horses midstream.”
