A study has found that a wayward sneeze is enough to give up to 150 fellow commuters a cold in just five minutes!

In the West and in most of the countries, it is considered an ill manner or bad etiquette.
How often we see people coughing or sneezing while on a crowded metro train or on a bus. Many a time we get startled by a sudden sneeze or cough over our shoulder from the man standing behind and what’s irritatingly worse is, forget about covering their nose or mouth, there’s even no expression of ‘sorry’ or ‘excuse me’, nor even an apologetic-look!
