The risk of catching the coronavirus from surfaces is low.

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/08/...

"When the coronavirus began to spread in the United States last spring, many experts warned of the danger posed by surfaces. Researchers reported that the virus could survive for days on plastic or stainless steel, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advised that if someone touched one of these contaminated surfaces — and then touched their eyes, nose or mouth — they could become infected.

Americans responded in kind, wiping down groceries, quarantining mail and clearing drugstore shelves of Clorox wipes. Facebook closed two of its offices for a “deep cleaning.” New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority began disinfecting subway cars every night."

"But the era of “hygiene theater” may have come to an unofficial end this week, when the C.D.C. updated its surface cleaning guidelines and noted that the risk of contracting the virus from touching a contaminated surface was less than 1 in 10,000."

I've never felt too thretend by surface contaminations but I'm a bit surprised about the New York Times calling it “hygiene theater” when 'New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority began disinfecting subway cars every night.'
If you have 5.6 million rides every day for over a year of pandemics a risk of 1 in 10,000 isn't really nothing ...

And “There’s really no evidence that anyone has ever gotten Covid-19 by touching a contaminated surface” doesn't realy say anything in the subway scenario. How would you even know if somebody got infected by surface contact, person to person contact or by aerosols while riding a train?

Cowdung's reality is "going by what's reported" unless he disagrees with it, then he will rage for 30 pages.
