Actually that was a sarcastic jab at that commercial.

Future problems? Perhaps.

I look at it with a jaundiced eye.
Its one thing to clean up after traffic accidents, fights and such.
But to step into a room where the slightest mistake on anyone’s part can kill you, and a pretty gruesome death at that, that’s asking or expecting a lot.

Here’s another thought.
People were shocked to see those NYPD officers disposing of gloves and masks in a public trash can.

But unlike medical personnel, people from the CDC, etc., all they have to keep from getting this crud is a pair of nitrile gloves and an ill fitting mask.

How long until one of the blue suiters gets something, how long until they refuse to go on medical calls? If for no other reason than they’re not trained and equipped. And bluntly, those are some pretty good reasons.

Same applies to medical personnel.
When merely touching your face inadvertently could kill you, because some idiot had to eat some mystery monkey meat and then jump on a plane home so he didn’t miss the final four, I have a hard time laying blame.
