My extreme anti-covid routines: Sterilizing my eyelids and soaping my nostrils (Washington Post)

Washington Post: My extreme anti-covid routines: Sterilizing my eyelids and soaping my nostrils. “You may think you’re totally safe because you wear a mask and gloves during the pandemic. But do you put alcohol up your nose and antiseptic on your eyelids when you come home? Having little to do these days but wait for the novel coronavirus to spread, I take what might seem like excessive precautions. It’s not because I don’t follow the science. It’s because so few others are taking any precautions at all; those of us who want to avoid the contagion have to carry a much heavier security burden. Measures that appear gratuitous are basic efforts at self-preservation.”
