SARS-CoV-2 RNA Detection on Disposable Wooden Chopsticks, Hong Kong.
Emerg Infect Dis. 2020 Sep; 26(9)EI

Abstract

We detected severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) RNA on disposable wooden chopsticks used by 5 consecutive asymptomatic and postsymptomatic patients admitted for isolation and care at our hospital. Although we did not assess virus viability, our findings may suggest potential for transmission through shared eating utensils.
