The school is an environment that is packed with students, staff, and other non-teaching staff. It is mostly packed to the brim, which makes the environment capable of spreading germs and harmful microbes. Cough, sneezes and sniffles can transmit these microbes on to school desks, chairs and other classroom furniture.
Desktops may harbour microscopic germs even if they appear to be clean. When students use these contaminated school desks, they are likely to catch these pathogens and fall sick. This is a scenario that needs to be avoided in schools. Daily desk sanitation is the only way to effectively amp up our defence against these disease-causing germs.
