  1. Interesting but I wonder does its protection wear off after a time. Also bacteria and virus do adapt after a while. I think about the over use of anti-bacterial products has probably led to increased resistance from the very germs those products were meant to kill.

      It’s a novel idea, but I figure it needs a bit of tweaking. It seems the sleeves aren’t quite long enough to prevent your fingers from touching the subway pole. Complete germaphobes would probably have a slight problem with that.
