Is Disinfecting Surfaces Still Important?

eTradeWire News/10603772
NEWMARKET, Ontario - eTradeWire -- When the beginning of the pandemic took place, stores around the world felt a huge impact. Disinfectant sprays and wipes were sold out practically everywhere, but people were constantly being told to wipe down their packages and cans they bought at the grocery store.

Interestingly enough, scientists have learned a lot during this outbreak including how it is transmitted, and it seems as though all of that disinfecting may not be entirely needed.

When a person infected with COVID coughs, sneezes or talks loudly, droplets of the virus can travel through the air and land on whatever surfaces are close to them, but the risk of getting contaminated this way is apparently extremely low. The virus is seen to decay quite quickly, getting rid of the infectiousness within the particles.

Early on in the pandemic, studies were released to show that the virus can last for long amounts of time on surfaces, in some cases, days. In retrospect, this outlook was considered "overkill". All of the evidence points towards breathing in the air from the virus as being the most important factor in whether or not you have a risk of getting infected.
