Did you know that airport security trays are filthy, even dirtier than toilets?
According to a study published by the BioMed Central Infectious Diseases journal, carried out at Helsinki airport in Finland, it’s the trays used during security checks that contain the most pathogens that could make you sick.
There are actually fewer viruses on toilet seats and toilet buttons than in luggage trays! The viruses that they tested for included the flu viruses and rhinovirus, which cause cold-like symptoms.
How Can I Avoid This Contamination?
After touching the trays do not touch your mouth or eyes as this will enable the bugs to get into your system. Use antibacterial gels and sprays to disinfect your hands and personal items and when going through security, keep your teddy bears safely sealed inside your bag.
