#coronavirus Is Airborne Indoors. But We’re Still Scrubbing Surfaces: Virus spreads primarily thru inhaled droplets & there is little to no evid that deep cleaning mitigates the threat indoors nytimes.com/2020/11/18/wor…

NEW: All over the world, workers are soaping, wiping and fumigating surfaces with an urgent sense of purpose -- pure 'hygiene theater' when airborne virus is a much greater threat indoors

New article by @mikeives and @apoorva_nyc : We still clean surfaces much like when the pandemic started but miss out on indoor #aerosol transmission....The latter very true still in Germany....

Scrubbing Indoor Surfaces Does Little to Mitigate Covid
"A lot of time, energy and money is being wasted on surface disinfection &, more importantly, diverting attention and resources away from preventing airborne transmission"

All over the world, workers are wiping surfaces to fight the coronavirus. But scientists say there is little to no evidence contaminated surfaces spread the virus.
(Thank you, @apoorva_nyc, for addressing this humonogous misallocation of energy.)

This is what many Aus health professionals already argue:
> We're overstating fomite transmission (touching surfaces)
> understating aerosol spread of #covid19aus through the air when indoors, where virus can be: suspended in air, inhaled, cause infection nytimes.com/2020/11/18/wor…
All over the world, workers are soaping, wiping and fumigating surfaces with an urgent sense of purpose: to fight the coronavirus. But scientists increasingly say that there is little to no evidence that contaminated surfaces can spread the virus.
El coronavirus se transmite por el aire en interiores
¿Por qué seguimos limpiando superficies?
