Turns out the risk of getting COVID-19 from touching an infected surface is “generally” 1 in 10,000, according to a new CDC study.
That means “that each contact with a contaminated surface has less than a 1 in 10,000 chance of causing an infection,” the CDC explained in a statement.
Instead, the virus is mainly transmitted via the air — which essentially defeats the purpose of all the disinfecting wipes, and business owners feeling the need to obsessively make certain everything in their respective establishments was thoroughly scrubbed.
“The principal mode by which people are infected with SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) is through exposure to respiratory droplets carrying infectious virus,” the CDC relayed. “It is possible for people to be infected through contact with contaminated surfaces or objects (fomites), but the risk is generally considered to be low.”
The CDC then went on to conclude that “surface disinfection once- or twice-per-day had little impact on reducing estimated risks.”
So if nothing else, perhaps now we can put away the gloves and Lysol.

Now make sure to take your poisoned Bill Gates juice shot.
I’ll go down in a hail of gunfire before I allow them to inject Phase 2 of the CCP/Gates/Fauci genocide plan into me…
Now that Trump has been overthrown, all the lies and hysteria comes out…
I’ve been hearing this for a year now, not from the government or MSM, but from the actual “science”. It’s an airborne virus. Common sense, people
Yeah they knew this a year ago.
Not only did they know it a year ago and announce it, they then changed their mind about a week later. The portion of the American public willing to forge ahead through this has done so in spite of the CDC.
“Airborne virus” that has a 99.8% survival rate.
Are anal swabs still a thing? Asking for a friend.
They are for Bathhouse Bottom Tony Fauci…
CDC is a clown show. What a disgrace.
