2. I believe they disinfect with bleach solution.

Diluted bleach breaks down very quickly, particularly when exposed to sunlight. I would wonder about ones risk if they were hosing down this equipment with insufficient bleach and no mask. Or if you miss a spot on the equipment and then handle it without sufficient protection. There are so many little things that could go wrong if you don't have sufficient protective equipment, or are trying to reuse it rather than discard it.

I don't know, however she got infected, it was via direct contact.
