So why do the British seem to have more cases of Swine Flu than anywhere else (proportionally speaking)? There is one fairly easy answer: because far too many of us cough, yawn and sneeze without covering mouth and/or nose ,not even realising how disgusting it all is.
In shops, just seeing how often customers sneeze or cough, it’s a wonder the cashiers aren’t all dead – I think they should wear surgical masks. Just 2 hours ago I saw someone yawn without covering his mouth, and not just a little yawn either – he looked like an anaconda about to swallow a pig whole. Yes it disgusting, but there’s nothing you can do. If people won’t change their attitudes to hygiene when there’s Pig Bug panic going on, when are they? Plague?
