Viruses differ greatly in size, the smallest being about 20 nanometers in diameter to the largest measuring some 400 nanometers across. For reference, a human hair is about 60,000 nanometers in diameter, so literally billions of viruses could fit on that proverbial head of a pin.
When it comes to things like elevator or ATM buttons, door handles, or so many other surfaces with which you likely have to come into regular contact, the microbes might measure more than you’d care to think about, especially during the days of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Regular use of hand sanitizer and, better yet, hand washing with soap certainly helps. Wearing gloves while you’re out and about is also a great idea to limit your potential exposure to the coronavirus, not to mention to other viruses and bacteria.
Still better is using a tool that means no part of your body — gloved and soon to be washed though it may be — ever comes into contact with potential viral hotbeds like the handle of a sink in a public restroom, the door latch of that taxi or Uber, or the keypad at the gas pump as you fill up the car you depend on.
