Should really be OFCOM

The virus is spread almost exclusively over the air (a novel OTA update!) so hand sanitisers cannot effectively stop its spread. They may well prevent other infections spreading, just not SARS-COV-2.

On the plus side, the fine seems proportionate and can hopefully be collected. Non-payment of fines has been the biggest problem so far.
