    Question Question on Safely handling groceries

    I see that multiple sources are saying that as long as you keep your hands washed, you dont need to wipe down packages and items you get from grocery stores. How true is this? And does this account for someone potentially coughing on the package? Thanks

    Would a Virus disassemble if we could force it to be matter waves with destructive interference of the wave that is causing it to be physical?

    Poll:Is your local government and medical system ready to handle Covid-19?
