I’m so, so sorry to remind you of this, but your phone is disgusting. Just think about how many things you touch in a day. Now think about how many times you touch your phone in a day. Chances are, your mobile device is not only your main mode of communication with the world, but also your own personal germ-covered cesspool.
This is likely not new information to you, and yet, it seems like most people’s way of handling this public health crisis is to simply forget about it. I’m guilty of this, too: Sometimes, I’ll touch a subway pole, then touch my phone, then think about how much bacteria is all over the pole, and now my hand, and now the phone. Then, I momentarily black out, before taking a deep breath to collect my thoughts and proceed with my day. It’s fine. I’m fine!
