There are places in the airport where thousands more bacteria are concentrated than in the toilet bowl of your house
An American study shows that this is the case
We all love to travel, but what you probably don’t know is that there are places in the airport where thousands more bacteria are contracted than in the toilet bowl of your house and there is no bathroom.
In addition to tourists, airports are also breeding grounds for microbes. Some studies explain that tens of thousands of bacteria are examined in common areas. A study from the United States illustrates which site is where it contracts the most. Prepared by insurancequotes.com website. The study investigated the top 3 US airports and 3 unspecified US jet airlines.
According to the study, the automatic check-in touch screen, where passengers usually go through to check-in, once at the airport without queuing-in, is the place with the most bacteria in the entire airport.
On average, a glass screen could contain something like 253,857 CFU (the unit with which it was measured). This boat goes far beyond seatbelts, a toilet tank, among other things.
