HEALTH: Hygiene Theater, like Security Theater, is a waste of attention, time, and resources

Surface Cleaning in Response to COVID-19 is Hygiene Theater

*** begin quote ***

Joseph G. Allen, an associate professor and director of the Healthy Buildings program at Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Charles Haas, professor of environmental engineering at Drexel University and Linsey C. Marr, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Virginia Tech, write in The Washington Post:

We don’t have a single documented case of covid-19 transmission from surfaces. Not one.

So why, then, are we spending a small fortune to deep clean our offices, schools, subways and buses?

*** end quote ***

Just like the Gooferment, who desires to be seen as “leading”, sends up down a rat hole of wasted effort.

Gooferment is just immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy.
