Concerns over hygiene
The potential of publicly used touchscreens to spread harmful bacteria and disease has been well-documented, even prior to the current pandemic. A report several months ago showed that certain self-service screens in fast-food outlets had fecal matter and E. coli present amongst other bacteria. Other studies conducted in U.S. airports have shown that touchscreen self-check-in kiosks contain up to 10 times the number of colony-forming units as are found in the average kitchen sink.
