What kinds of bacteria are found in public places such as
telephones, countertops and shopping cart handles?
There are bacteria everywhere you are-they are around you and on you and in

surface and leave less room for bad bacteria. Anyway-there are bacteria,
yeasts, molds and viruses on every surface. There are too many to name here.
