If you’re still obsessively wiping down your counters, doorknobs, and other frequently touched surfaces on a daily basis, we have some good news.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has just revealed that new data suggests COVID-19 “does not spread easily” from “touching surfaces or objects.”
Of course, people should still take precaution as they see fit. Healthy hygiene is still encouraged.
But fortunately, the virus does not spread easily on objects or surfaces, the CDC claims.
This means that the primary concern would be human-to-human transmission.
