    Public transportation, gas pumps, EV charging stations and many other points of physical contact can be a significant public health risks.

    Far UVc light kills virtually all known viruses and microrganisms and has been used in hospitals for years. I believe that all gas pumps and EV charging stations should be redesigned and equipped with self-sterilizing holsters for the handle and buttons should be replaced with touchless NFC technology or have cellphone based activation protocols.

    All public washroom stalls should also be equipped with such self-sanitizing systems to mitigate the spread of infectious diseases.

    If you want to educate yourself on far UVc light and its ability to kill coronavirus and other pathogens this is by far the best article I have come across.

    The transportation has become more difficult for sure.  I have no idea how long the situation with covid will last, but it's not convenient at all. I am currently moving to another city and it has been difficult all along because of the virus. I'm kinda happy I could find a https://highstreammoving.com/ company that could be able to help, but the process itself is...exhausting.
