We’re all trying to be better informed and protect ourselves and loved ones by reducing exposure to COVID-19 and its variants. We’re social distancing, wearing masks and constantly sanitizing and washing our hands. But how many of us think of our smartphone as a major source of threat to our health?
We’re attached to our phones almost constantly, even more than before the ongoing lockdowns and isolation.
