Experts say you can catch Coronavirus from your shoes

We all know, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) that COVID-19 can live on a variety of surfaces for hours or even days.

But now what some experts are saying is mind blowing.

Some infectious diseases experts say COVID-19 can live on your shoe soles for up to five days. Shoe soles are typically made from synthetic, non-porus material and could be a breeding ground for bacteria.

Other experts say the concern about shoes is overblown.

Many are concerned that they may be unknowingly picking up germs on the street on their shoes and bringing them into their home. 

Until more is known about how likely it is to contaminate your home with Coronavirus from your shoes, it may be advisable to practice basic hygiene, including leaving your shoes at the front door, cleaning them with an antibacterial wipe or as an extra precaution, putting them into the washing machine.
