Next time you cough or sneeze…

How is it that we were all taught, when growing up, to put our hand in front of our mouth when we sneeze or cough?

It makes no sense at all, since all the germs are landing nicely in the hand, to be passed on to the next person or object we touch and then, surprise, surprise, that cold or flu is then adopted by someone else. W

e need to start teaching our kids to, ideally, sneeze into a tissue, and if that is not available, to use the forearm. Common sense, really, if you think about it…
