As we continue to destroy our economy, and destroy people’s lives, go into crushing debt, see increases in drug overdoses and family breakdown, and all the other consequences of this ludicrous over reaction to a virus that kills under 1% of those it infects, with those who do die being overwhelmingly elderly and those already sick with something else, one of the fakest and gayest aspects of the mass media driven insanity has been the obsession with “deep cleaning” of places where it has been found that someone with Chinese bat plague visited.
There is virtually no point in doing cleaning of surfaces because infection transmission occurs in an airborne fashion; the chances that the virus can survive in a high enough concentration on a surface, and then someone comes along and touches it, and then touches his mouth or nose, and infection then occurs, is basically zero.
Another example from today:
The “Beyonce” tower, a skyscraper construction site in Melbourne’s CBD, is in lockdown after a dozen cases of COVID-19 were confirmed among building workers.
The outbreak at the 780-apartment Premier Tower site on Spencer Street has prompted construction giant Multiplex to immediately shut work down for a full “hospital grade” clean.
A whole construction site to get a “hospital grade” clean; at least someone is making money out of this silliness – cleaning contractors.
See Hygiene Theater Is a Huge Waste of Time (if we’re linking to the “Atlantic” of all places, it’s got to be good.)
This is also going to apply to the whole wash your hands mania: it’s not going to help. Washing hands a few times a day is of course advisable but what we have now is a fair group of people who are doing it in a more or less obsessive compulsive way. Fake, and gay.
