All SARS (both flu and coronavirus are no exception) are transmitted in two ways: by airborne droplets and by touch. Our instructions will help you minimize these risks.

How right

Sneeze into a tissue or disposable handkerchief. This is the method recommended by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Pros: This method helps to avoid the spread of the virus by airborne droplets, and provided that the scarf is immediately thrown away and the hands are washed, it prevents the risk of transmission of the virus by contact.

Cons: It is not always possible to control the urge to sneeze and cough, and a handkerchief may simply not be at hand. And then there is a risk of sneezing in the most dangerous way - in the open.

Sneeze into the inner fold of the elbow. A method that is worth working out to automatism.

Pros: no need to waste time looking for a scarf, the risk of contact transmission is completely excluded.

Cons: It is impossible to completely prevent the spread of the virus by airborne droplets.

How wrong

Cover your mouth with your palm. Yes, that's what our mothers taught us in childhood. Sneezing without covering your mouth is really very impolite.

Pros: Physical barrier between saliva and the environment.

Cons: When we cover our mouth with our hand, pathogens appear on it along with particles of saliva. If you don't wash your hands right away (without touching the tap or touching anything), then you can leave them on all surfaces with which we will come in contact. Exactly so: through handrails in transport, door handles and taps at home and in the office, most of the SARS infections occur.
