Nick Wilson of Otago University Wellington in New Zealand, and his associates conducted a survey in a shopping center, train station and medical center in order to find out how unsanitary some people are. Students kept tabs on when people sneezed or coughed and if they covered their mouths or not.
Researched showed that 26.7% of people did not in fact cover their mouths. Come on guys, don’t you know there’s tons of germs in saliva? Don’t make us suffer just because you want to be a disgusting human being. Let’s give a special shout out to that 4.7% of folks that actually used a tissue or their elbow. Kudos to you because that is the actual way to cover a sneeze or cough.
Sadly an astounding 64.4% of individuals did cover their mouths, but they used their hand which is still lame because you’ve just transferred your germs onto your hands which sucks for anyone that will shake it that day.
This study shows that only one in four people cover their mouth correctly when coughing or sneezing. It also shows just how disgusting some of you are. Do we need to go back to elementary school to be taught about sanitation again or what?
