Before you scream these are positive and unexpected side effects. Some doctors in Singapore have noticed a huge reduction in cases of flu, common cold, diarrhoea and conjunctivitis.
They put the effect down to increased personal hygiene and social distancing. We are washing our hands frequently, keeping an effective distance from others and avoiding social hugging and kissing.
The interesting factor is whether we can keep this up after covig-19 has abated. The huge benefit of increased personal hygiene should not be sneezed at, sorry couldn’t resit that one.
