USA Today: "To avoid getting sick, it's also important that we stop touching our noses and mouths all the time, a new study shows"

"Recommendations issued to the public typically emphasize hand-washing, but during potentially severe disease outbreaks, the messages should be shifted to ensure that people understand how self-inoculation occurs, and avoid touching their faces, the researchers said in their study."

"It is also important to be aware that re-contamination can occur very quickly after we wash our hands"
