New Flu Study – Watch Where You Put Those Hands!
Along with covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze, a new study spells out the need to disinfect surfaces as part of a flu-prevention strategy.

The study points to the need to cover coughs, disinfect touching surfaces, and protect against airborne cough particles.
