Just one more thing to carry. Meh. I'd pass. At $14.99. Nah.

Even before the pandemic had all of us worried about the coronavirus, Seth Kessler would think about germs - especially when taking mass transit.

"Riding the subway, I always do the subway shuffle, you always try to keep your balance, without touching anything, it's hard," Kessler said.

Seth Kessler, a commercial real estate broker, invented a no-touch grip for subway travel with the help of his family

The invention, called the Touch No More, launched this year, and is approaching a thousand sales

Kessler said subway riders inquire about his Touch No More invention when he's riding on a train

The whole "surface contimination" thing is one thing that thankfully turned out to be overblown. I remember people were going nuts at the beginning of the pandemic with the germophobia.

I'm more concerned about getting beg bugs or flees from the homeless people on the trains.

Same. That's more of actual risk. Not just hobos, but any unsuspecting/uncaring person can spread bedbugs.

This is a good strategy!

I would have to spray all of the handrails down to the subway.

So you touch the tool, then the tool touchs the subway bar and then you touch tool again and put it in your bag. Why not just touch the bar and use some hand sanitizer or soap and water after.

Grifters gonna grift...people were rightfully concerned about fomite transmission in the early months but it's pretty clear now that it is quite rare. You should still wash your hands regularly, though, as it's cheap and helps you avoid getting other illnesses that might send you to the doctor to get exposed to the virus.

Are you kidding me? This is stupidity. People need to learn how Lysol works.
