Hey Doc, You've got a radical column here. My question is one about fingering. Is it possible for the virus to be transmitted this way? I didn't notice any cuts on my finger or anything. What about the virus going under the fingernail or something, man? Thanks for the good work. Later.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hey Finger-guy,

No worries dude. The virus cannot pass through intact skin or crawl in under your fingernails.

Stay sane.

Dr. Bob
