"COVID-19 has seen the world embrace sanitisers and formal hand washing
procedures in our private lives like never before. But even as we’ve thought
more and more about surfaces and the hands that touch them as vectors for
disease, mobile phones have largely escaped scrutiny.
We carry them everywhere (including the toilet) but they’re rarely cleaned or
sanitised, and we touch them with our hands many, many times per day.
Lotti Tajouri explains what his research team found when they surveyed hospital
staff about their phone use, the bacteria, viruses and parasites they found on
swabbed phones, and the very personal reason he began this research."
