A well-known result due to H. Corson states that, for any covering τ by closed bounded convex subsets of any Banach space X containing an infinite-dimensional reflexive subspace, there exists a compact subset C of X that meets infinitely many members of τ. We strengthen this result proving that, even under the weaker assumption that X contains an infinite-dimensional separable dual space, an (algebraically) finite-dimensional compact set C with that property can always be found.
