From where I sit in my garden I can see green fields and hills and its a wonderful place to be isolated in and I know how lucky I am.
I can also see family group after family group walk along a footpath across fields and into a wood. there are field gates along this path, big ones large enough to drive a tractor through.
Seeing the numbers of people passing along, I wonder about the possibility of transmission of the virus on the metal handle/opener of the gate. Are these people safe? Its a lovely footpath along some pretty scenery and I wouldn't want it closed - but, do they think about how many hands have been on those gates before them?
I seem to remember reading that it can live for up to 72 hours on metal and thats why we should sanitize our door handles and hand rails.
Just a passing thought whilst I'm staying here in the sunshine.
