Apr 6 - CDC says using hand sanitizer is not necessary
 

 
End the hygiene theater, CDC says

It’s time to unplug the sanitizing robots and put away the bottles of Clorox that seem to line the entrances to every school, restaurant and supermarket wanting to advertise its safety protocols. While such protocols may be reassuring to an anxious populace, they are not necessary, says a revised guidance issued on Monday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“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 new CDC guidance says, estimating that the chance of contracting the coronavirus through surface transmission is lower than 1 in 10,000.

The coronavirus is spread almost exclusively by airborne and aerosolized particles, as scientists have known for months. Despite scientists’ growing certitude about how the pathogen is transmitted, many establishments have continued to insist on strict sanitization protocols. In some school districts, for example, classrooms close for full-day “deep cleaning.”

The persistence of such practices has led to the advent of a derisive term — “hygiene theater” — to describe rituals that appear to do little to stop the virus from spreading. It is not clear if the CDC’s new guidance will lower the curtain on those theatrics, given how entrenched some of those practices have become.

“If we took half the effort that’s being given to disinfection, and we put it on ventilation, that will be huge,” University of Colorado atmospheric chemist Jose-Luis Jimenez told the scientific publication Nature for an article published last month.

Scientists’ changing understanding of the virus has made it difficult for public health experts and elected officials to offer the public consistent advice.

For example, when the pandemic began, Americans were told that face masks were not necessary. That guidance was later amended after it became clear that masks kept a sick person from spreading the disease. Still later, scientists acknowledged that masks also protected the wearer.

The Biden administration has continued to ask people to wear face masks, but months of confusion and contradiction have likely attenuated the impact of that message.

The science regarding fomites has followed a similar route. At first, the World Health Organization said the coronavirus was not airborne but instead was transmitted primarily through “respiratory droplets and contact routes,” a mistaken a*sertion that has been criticized since it was made in March 2020.

It was around that time that the U.S. saw surging demand for heavy-duty disinfectants that would k*ll any trace of virus on a surface. But as researchers have discovered, such traces are usually relatively small and have a difficult time finding a new human host. What’s more, simple cleaning agents appear to be effective against the virus, obviating the need for more advanced (and expensive) disinfectants.

“In most situations, cleaning surfaces using soap or detergent, and not disinfecting, is enough to reduce risk,” says the new guidance, which was introduced by Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the CDC director, during a Monday briefing of the White House COVID-19 response team.

The use of such disinfectants, the CDC says, is necessary only if a person known to be infected with the coronavirus has been inside the space in question within the previous 24 hours. But because it can be difficult for restaurants and other high-volume establishments to know whether a patron is infected — a difficulty compounded by the scarcity of rapid testing — it is likely that as unnecessary and expensive as such measures are, the hygiene theater will go on.

I've been using hand sanitizer long before I ever knew what covid-19 was.

But it would make sense that a respiratory virus would be airborne and not spread via surfaces.

I honestly hate when the CDC does this sh*t because the right will look at it and say "See, they don't know wtf they're talking about. Don't trust anything they say".

I love it

The other option is, "pander to the public"

Keep studying the virus and variants and adjusting to the new information

I get it with sh*t that actually matters. But this is a good practice regardless and only gives ammo to right wing idiots to claim the CDC doesn't know sh*t.

We can't blame the CDC for people not having an understanding of 4th grade Science

Science changes, things change as they learn more about sh*t. If things didn't change and they didn't learn sh*t we'd still be burning scars closed after blood letting pints of blood out of people

They said in the beginning hand sanitizer was useless because you weren’t washing the germs off, you are just moving them around. Also you needed 99% alcohol & most if not all stores sold out when that toilet paper frenzy happened...

Regardless if hand sanitizer is necessary for covid, a lot of nasty MFers need to use something to clean their hands more thru the day.

A lot of nasty MFers still walk outta public bathrooms without washing their hands everyday. They shoulda just kept quiet.
