Sources of transmission

    I have heard that one is unlikely to catch Covid from surfaces as opposed to breathing it in from the air .

    Can anyone tell/reassure me that this is indeed the case and perhaps quantify the relative likelihood of catching this virus from these 2 different sources of infection?

    Is it half as likely ?A hundred times less likely? In between?

    Also is the new B117 variant a new variable in this regard?

    Is it more transmissible from surfaces than the old virus from last year?
