In an era of hyper-awareness of communicable disease, it would be hard to imagine a more ideal vector for the transmission of coronavirus (or any other pathogen) than the handle of a slot machine. Perhaps roulette or blackjack are safer bets, or maybe New York State casinos and other gaming venues should be shut down until the situation improves. Just saying.
