This is important, so many people worry about airborne transmission when they should be more worried about membrane and fomite/object transmission.
Somebody sneezes or coughs in your face and your eyes are open, you could get the virus. The way these novel CoVs bind to cells can allow them to go
deeper into lung tissue than other respiratory illnesses like bronchitis or the flu. They may be able to suppress T cell response, which limits host
identification of infected tissue.
One of the leading theories of undiagnosed or misidentified laboratory acquired infections is through a non traditional route such as the eye, which
drains into ducts, which drain into tubes, that drain into your stomach and boom, you’re infected. The same thing applies in society or in the wild,
you touch something that an infected host touched, then rub your eye or face and you get the disease.
We use hand sanitizer with our students, it’s an inspectable item in the cargo pocket. It works wonders reducing transmission of respiratory and
fecal-oral diseases. Much better than a procedure mask like everyone seems to be wearing.
