I think there are probably more hazards from others having inadvertently handled your wee cube of bread (or, worse, tearing from the same roll) than from the shared cup. Hands are generally far filthier than mouths.

I'd imagine the risks of either must be very small. But I could tell you some stories (from my Baptist childhood) about how the bread and "wine" was stored and handled.

It'd be boring, so I won't - but let's just say it wasn't really handled with much dignity and hygiene.

When my Dad was helping out the (Methodist) communion stewards, I was sometimes tasked with throwing the leftover bread to the birds in the church garden. As a small boy, I generally ate it instead. I think nowadays I have a fairly 'high' view of the host for a non-con prod - and I feel no shame about either of those options. I remember munching and feeling entirely thankful!

I don't think people would do that today. Within the mainstream of the Catholic Church, things are much simpler. Of course some people say that there is a lack of respect. I might even say that myself sometimes.

I've seen people walk backwards in church at all times, not just when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed. It's been done in CMRI churches for decades, and some still practice it.

https://christandpopculture.com/story-little-communion-cups-whatever-technically-called/, and links therein, are worth noting here. We must inundate the author with the authoritative word, that they are technically called "wee cuppies."
