This is highlighting an often forgotten surface we touch all the time and everywhere, our phones. It gives good advice on how to clean it to potentially reduce spreading any infectious disease.

Pretty good context about routes that disease can use to spread. A little humor. But not really addressing the importance of this vis-à-vis hand-washing. You could isolate your phone by wiping it every time you wash your hands, and be careful that you don't get either your hands or phone close to any orifices in between. I'll personally take a package of baby wipes to my office for my phone. They're a little weak on surfactants & alcohol but since the “oleophobic” coatings are so smooth and much more easily cleaned than skin or rougher-textured materials (almost everything), they should be good enough for that purpose. So it's actionable info!

A ton of great context here on what it would entail to clean your cellphone regularly and why it's something people should be considering. They dive deep into the research as well as the components of cellphone surfaces giving readers the full context while also honestly stating that coronavirus spread is still untested on these surfaces.
