Thanks for your uplifting post. And how about material things you buy in supermarkets and other shops. ‘It is said’ that the virus survives quite a long time on boxes, foods? clothes, metal utensils or surfaces? That really causes paranoia, doesn ‘t it?Reply
It can cause paranoia. However I think you can ‘reframe’ the information.
Firstly at this stage there is very little evidence that people have become sick from touching surfaces. Probably because it transmits such a tiny dose of virus.
However we have good evidence that the virus lives for up to 2-3 days on certain surfaces. So you create a clean zone and a dirty zone. You put anything you are worried about in the dirty zone and wash it appropriately. Make sure you then wash your hands and transfer it into your clean zone. You therefore can handle anything happily in this clean area.
I hope this is helpful.
