You see warning after warning about how how germ-ridden airports are.

Even when people try to be considerate and cough or sneeze into their hands, it means they’ve just put a bajillion germs into their hands And right after they do one or more of these things, they wind up using the touch screens to check in.

There are thousands upon on thousands of people crammed into a building or traveling through the air in metal tubes every day and their hands and fingers have been in lots of icky (and sometimes downright nasty) places and who knows when was the last time any of them have washed their hands or even if they did a good job of it.
You’d think that bathrooms would be the dirtiest places but nope, that’s not even close…
