Sick? Doing this one thing can keep everyone else around you healthy


Some people cover their mouths whenever they cough or sneeze. They’re religious about it. They scrub their hands whenever they pass a sink, they turn away, cough into their arms, sneeze into tissues. And a new study proves that they’re right on.

 

Before, scientists assumed larger germ-filled sneeze and cough droplets traveled farther than smaller droplets, and so they thought the “blast radius” was limited to the distance that large droplet could travel. This recent study shows that smaller droplets travel farther—up to 200 times farther, in fact. That means your uncovered sneeze or cough could spread bacteria or viruses to many more people.
