2. What were they spraying in WUHAN anyway?

Maybe it would be appropriate in large cities like NYC.

3. K&R, without testing and isolation there's no need for cleaning. Test/Isolate/Clean & we're back at

... it again.

4. We don't have our shit together like South Korea.

We can't even get tested, let alone disinfect our streets.

6. It couldn't hurt

If they think it's worth doing in Asia then it should be for us too

13. I only saw China doing it, so makes me think it was just theater

I can't see how pavement would be a significant infection vehicle.

18. Italy Did It, Too

Not sure that's a selling point for the efficacy of doing it.

I would imagine.

10. I live in Brooklyn

and while walking along the park yesterday, we saw two separate people hock loogies on the ground.

Yes, it was more common in Asia. But seriously???? YOu're doing this NOW? What the fuck is wrong with people.

11. I watched a woman spit in an Aldi parking lot & then go in the store.

Ewwww! I stayed about 20í away from her. She also over-handled the products on the shelves.

19. About a week ago I saw a dude at Kroger pick up a tin of some kind of grooming product...

He opened it, stuck his finger in it, found it not to his liking, and closed it and put it back on the shelf.

No spitting involved, but the "over-handling" reminded me of this.

I'm for spraying everything everywhere. I bring groceries to my young adult children & my daughter Lysols the Clorox wipes!

14. Not likely to happen in America and could be dangerous.

Probably substantially effective only in very crowded city areas where some people go barefoot or wear sandals, or where people handle and remove their shoes prior to entering buildings.

With almost everyone sheltering indoors, there's no need.

There's also the issue of environmental effects of vast amounts of disinfectants going into our groundwater or sewers.

That all said, it is worthy of mention to say virus particles could in theory stay viable for a couple of days on outdoor surfaces under ideal conditions.

16. It's Virus Theater.

You arenít going to contract Covid from the street. Itís a silly gesture to make people feel like Daddy is helping.

17. Where are our UV lights? Certain frequencies kill viruses and are harmless to humans.
