Description:Caption:
Captured in a metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia primary school, seated amongst his classmates, this photograph depicts a young Asian-American school boy, who was in the process of creating a drawing, and was choosing from a box of crayons, the colors he’d use in order to bring his ideas to life. It is important to know that these objects are known as fomites, and can act as transmitters of illnesses. Viruses and bacteria are able to remain alive on their surfaces after being handled by an ill child, who can then inadvertently transfer these germs to another child, who subsequently handles these schoolroom articles.
