Stores are opening up again after the long lockdown. Yet, the question remains. Where are safe places? Where should we avoid?
In a recent Bestlife article, titled “6 Places That Should Reopen Last, According to MIT Researchers” a journalist Colby Hall shared some findings by MIT researchers that were published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The research was interesting in a sense that researchers “juxtaposed how different locations fare in terms of importance versus transmission risk.”
The list includes:
- Cafes, juice bars, and dessert parlors
- Sporting goods stores
- Tobacco shops
- Liquor stores
These businesses might be more valuable than any others to some people. But I think this article alerts and reminds us about the fact that the risk of getting infected is still prevalent. Medical staff, researchers and other health-related officials are doing their best to control the situation for our world. What can you do? At least pay attention to their advice.
