Taking Your Phone To The Toilet Could Increase Chances Of Getting Coronavirus

With the increasing number of coronavirus cases around the world, health experts have advised we stop taking our phones to the toilet which could prevent us from catching the virus.

This means we all need to put a hold to the “Toilet Selfies”.

One expert has also said there is ‘ little evidence’ the masks will help protect and are better worn by those who already have the virus to prevent it from spreading.

The government has advised that one of the best ways to protect yourself is to regularly wash your hands with warm water and soap, spending at least 20 seconds at the sink.

If you’re in the habit of taking your phone to the toilet as you do your business, you need to stop, as you run the risk of catching the virus.

That’s because the bacteria you transfer onto your phone screen from toilets that many other people may have used will go straight back to your hands when you use your phone again – making your 20 seconds of scrubbing pointless.

The virus can survive between two and nine hours on surfaces like metal, glass and plastic.
