For a few weeks now I’ve been suspecting that Omicron might also be transmitted by touch or even surfaces, much like the flu or the common cold, not just through droplets in the air.
I absolutely have no scientific base for that assumption, just a hunch, so this might be completely wrong. I base this on just the speed Omicron spreads and hearing from people who are careful any other way yet still got infected.
Time will tell. Will probably won’t be relevant as much, since everyone seems to get infected anyways.
