Hand washing, or lack of it, is a major reason for such bugs. Sadly you have only got to be aware of how few people actually WASH their hands properly using soap and water. Many people after a loo visit, probably involving something more solid than pee, only give their hands a cursory rinse without any pretence of using soap.
I wonder how often we have followed someone else into a loo and found the basin(s) bone dry - clearly the tap has not been touched and of course, those self-same hands have operated the door handles or push ........
Shame on people for not bothering - sadly that may well be the cause of many such bug spreads.... it is poor often, even in hospitals where a cursory spray of an alcohol gel is deemed adequate - which it is not. Doctors and nurses going from one person to the next may well aid the transmission, or even the auxiliaries taking food around and moving the table of one person before doing the same for the next or possibly helping them to sit up more....
Thinking of ALL the front line staff working to try to help others;Doctors, nurses, paramedics, cleaners, NA's, catering staff, support services and all others. Their work is appreciated more than you can ever realise-keep strong and safe.
Any typo that I make means the errorists win.
Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.
