This is our best evidence yet for why we need to start concentrating heavily on ventilation and preventing airborne transmission.
Remember the COVID deep-cleanse? Two years ago, in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States, many businesses and even homeowners obsessively sprayed disinfectant on open surfaces, aggressively wiping down and scrubbing every countertop and desk and table.
The fear back then was that the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen might survive on and spread via surfaces. People were afraid that simply sitting at a table after an infected person would expose them to COVID-19.
That fear was bunk.
