"Hepatitis, AIDS, that have a long, uh, life span after death. I mean long, we're talking days not necessarily years," he said. "These things should not be occurring in public settings."
I tend to think this argument is overblown—there are a lot of other things that go on in hotels that aren't exactly hygenic, and in the case of cadavers, I'm sure the ballroom is cleaned very thoroughly afterward. And I'm sure the CME providers do everything they can to keep things as sterile as possible. I'd be curious to know what you think about this one.
