Digging For Gold? Experts Say Picking Your Nose Isn'tJust Gross, It's Dangerous in The Time of Coronavirus
Most of us pick our noses — some 91% according to the only (smalland old) study that seems to have ever been done on the subject.
Jokes aside, nose picking is deadly serious.
Not only are people spreading their own bacteria and viruses onto everythingthey touch after a bout of digging for gold — but you also "transfergerms from your fingertips into the nose, which is the exact opposite of whatyou want".
That means that you can spread coronavirus to others from yournose-picking session, and you are also more likely to bring that virus, alongwith others like influenza or rhinovirus (the common cold), directly into yourbody.
